## NegentropyIn 1943 Erwin Schrödinger used the concept of In a note to
In 1974, Albert Szent-Györgyi proposed replacing the term negentropy with ## Additional recommended knowledge
## Information theoryIn information theory and statistics, negentropy is used as a measure of distance to normality. Negentropy is defined as where Negentropy is used in statistics and signal processing. It is related to network entropy, which is used in Independent Component Analysis. ## Organization theoryIn risk management, negentropy is the force that seeks to achieve effective organizational behavior and lead to a steady predictable state. ## Notes**^**Schrödinger Erwin*What is Life - the Physical Aspect of the Living Cell*, Cambridge University Press, 1944**^**Brillouin, Leon: (1953) "Negentropy Principle of Information", /J. of Applied Physics/, v. 24:9, pp. 1152-1163**^**Léon Brillouin*La science et la théorie de l'information*, Masson, 1959**^**http://www.cis.hut.fi/aapo/papers/NCS99web/node32.html Aapo Hyvärinen,*Survey on Independent Component Analysis, node32: Negentropy*, Helsinki University of Technology Laboratory of Computer and Information Science**^**http://www.cis.hut.fi/aapo/papers/IJCNN99_tutorialweb/node14.html Aapo Hyvärinen and Erkki Oja,*Independent Component Analysis: A Tutorial, node14: Negentropy*, Helsinki University of Technology Laboratory of Computer and Information Science**^**Ruye Wang,*Independent Component Analysis, node4: Measures of Non-Gaussianity***^**P.
