EntropyMax is a new 32-bit Windows-based software that groups large matrices of grain-size distribution data into a finite number of groups. The software utilises statistical algorithms that minimise the entropy within a group while maximising the entropy between groups. EntropyMax builds upon an existing DOS–BASIC program through the addition of a more robust computational routine, a graphical user interface, incorporation of an improved and more statistically meaningful method for identifying the optimal number of groupings, and better graphical presentation of results. These refinements add significantly to the functionality and statistical rigour of the program on modern computer platforms and large data sets.
