An introduction to maximum entropy
Maximum entropy methods are used in crystallography for estimating reflection phases among other applications. This chapter explains the basic concepts behind maximum entropy, including entropy itself and its relationship to probability and information. They are illustrated by a simple non-scientific example of estimating missing information based on reasonable assumptions.
