Summary:
"This book presents material on three topics, namely the amount of information involved in non-random functions, the amount of information involved in non-probabilistic square matrices (i.e. which are not quantum density matrices), and a new model of complex-valued fractional Brownian motion of order n, defined via random walks in the complex plane. These three subjects, which on the surface have no common features,

This volume also features many applications."
