The decrease of the information v.s. chaos ?

    the decrease of the information v.s. chaos ??

    One book about Chaos says that we can use the decrease of the information of the system to define whether the system is chaotic or not.

    I don't know why and how to do it?

    If you know about it, can you show it to me, or you can tell me the corresponding papers.

    Thank you!
