# Example 4: Cross-Distribution Entropy w/ Different Binning Methods

Import a signal of pseudorandom integers in the range [1, 8] and calculate the cross- distribution entropy with an embedding dimension of 5, a time delay (tau) of 3, and Sturges' bin selection method.

X = ExampleData("randintegers2");
XDist, _ = XDistEn(X, m = 5, tau = 3)
0.5248413652396312

Use Rice's method to determine the number of histogram bins and return the probability of each bin (Ppi).

XDist, Ppi = XDistEn(X, m = 5, tau = 3, Bins = "rice")
