We consider a discrete time deterministic chaotic dynamical system: x n+1 = T(xn), where T is a nonlinear map of the unit interval into itself. The effect of noise contamination is modeled by x n+1 = T(xn)+ ξn, where ξn is an independent random variable with small noise level. We present a new theoretical result for estimating the metric entropy of T from the observed data of the noisy system. We introduce a skew product representation for the noisy system and then show that this skew product satisfies a formula similar to Adler's natural entropy formula. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.
