Title: BiEntropy for Python v. 1.0

Abstract

This Python package provides high-performance implementations of the functions and examples presented in "BiEntropy - The Approximate Entropy of a Finite Binary String" by Grenville J. Croll, presented at ANPA 34 in 2013. https://arxiv.org/abs/1305.0954 According to the paper, BiEntropy is "a simple algorithm which computes the approximate entropy of a finite binary string of arbitrary length" using "a weighted average of the Shannon Entropies of the string and all but the last binary derivative of the string."
