# Entropy and Fractal Dimension ¶

In the study of dynamical systems there are many quantities that identify as "entropy". Notice that these quantities are not the more commonly known thermodynamic ones, used in Statistical Physics. Rather, they are more like the to the entropies of information theory, which represents information contained within a dataset, or information about the dimensional scaling of a dataset. Based on the definition of the generalized entropy, one can calculate an appropriate dimension.
