Fuzzy entropy is designed for non convex fuzzy membership function using well known Hamming distance measure. Design procedure of convex fuzzy membership function is represented through distance measure, furthermore characteristic analysis for non-convex function are also illustrated. Proof of proposed fuzzy entropy is discussed, and entropy computation is illustrated.
