Loosely speaking, given a system with many parts interacting with each other in multiple ways, the degree of complexity of a system is a measure related to the most compact way to describe all the possible states of the system.
In this talk the concept of complexity of the electromagnetic field is discussed using as measure of complexity the rank of the radiation operator or the Kolmogorov epsilon-entropy when non-linear spaces are involved. Applications of the theory to MIMO systems, antenna diagnosis, antenna measurements and inverse problems are presented showing how it is possible to effectively exploit the complexity of the electromagnetic field in practical problems.
