Approximate Entropy (ApEn) is a popular tool in analysing the complexity of time series data especially in clinical research.

This function is a very simple and efficient implementation of ApEn, based on vectorization concept that improves speed tremendously over for-loop implementation.

It also contains a test code (foo.m) for generating a plot of ApEn of different simulated time series data, to help understand the usage. The test code generates a plot similar to that appearing in Ki H. Chon's 2009 paper in IEEE Eng in Med Biol, that discusses what r value we should use.
