Abstract: The entropy measurement has been proposed for image restoration several years ago in astronomy. Different entropies have been used for this purpose. The multiscale entropy has the advantage to introduce a noise modeling, and the concept of information at different level of resolution. It can be used for tracking the presence of signal in a noisy data set. We show in this paper that it can also be used for background fluctuations analysis. A range of examples illustrates the results. We finally apply this method on X-ray simulations (XMM-EPIC) of diffuse large scale structure emission in order to discriminate different cosmological models.
