What is the entropy of a set?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One of the two should be a general guidline:

# A measure of the disorder or randomness in a closed system.

# A measure of the loss of information in a transmitted message.

I've seen topological entropy (bowen) and entropy of random variables, but what about of sets?
