The Diffusion Entropy algorithm is a method that allows the study of correlated non-stationary time series and allows the discrimination between signal and uncorrelated noise. DE provides a quantitative measure of the complexity by means of a scaling index δ. The aim of this paper is to apply this method to study and statistically characterize Gamma-Ray Burst light curves and to introduce a method to constrain and test GRB models.
