Information transfer between dynamical system components

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a rigorous formalism of information transfer for systems with dynamics fully known. This follows from an accurate classification of the mechanisms for the entropy change of one component into a self-evolution plus a transfer from the other component. The formalism applies to both continuous flows and discrete maps. The resulting transfer measure possesses a property of asymmetry and is qualitatively consistent with the classical measures. It is further validated with the baker transformation and the Hénon map.
