19.0% "In ch 4 HY argues for a reduced "space" in the statistics of molecular biology using the Shannon-McMillan-Breiman Theorem which is very often missed by most molecular biologists. \n He also argues fairly effectively against the concept of "negentropy" from a purely mathematical perspective and indicates that there is NO CONNECTION WHATSOEVER between Shannon Entropy and Maxwell-Boltzman-Gibbs Entropy."
