This book grew out of the lecture notes for Professor Ford's course taught at UCL. Rather than following the usual appeal to the growth of disorder and decay; the notion that everything is crumbling away or in some sense going wrong, the idea of entropy is firmly anchored to the development of uncertainty in an underspecified dynamical system.
