### Positional/Residual Entropy

Posted:

**Mon Jan 23, 2017 10:27 am**Hi All,

I was going back through what we learned in the course reader about entropy, and I found myself really confused about when you need to calculate positional/residual entropy and what the difference is between the calculations of positional/residual entropy and when you calculate entropy regularly.

Thanks!
