Quantifying Disorder through Conditional Entropy: An Application to Fluid Mixing

Figure 3

Conditional entropy during mixing and demixing.

The conditional entropy is quantified during mixing (A,C) and demixing (B,D) of a CG-LJ binary fluid membrane of particles. In (A) and (B), different definitions of the particle neighbourhood are compared: NB-cutoff (), NB-shell (, 2 shells), NB-weight (32 states) (see text). In (C) and (D), the conditional entropy is compared for different numbers of states of the neighbourhood after setting its definition to NB-weight.
