A number of different measures of complexity have been described, discussed, and applied to the logistic map. A classification of these measures has been proposed, dis- tinguishing homogeneous and generating partitions in phase space as well as structural and dynamical elements of the considered measure. The specific capabilities of particular measures to detect particular types of behavior of dynamical systems have been investi-gated and compared with each other.
