Synergy is a fundamental concept in complex systems that has received much attention in computational biology (Narayanan et al. 2005; Balduzzi and Tononi 2008). Several papers (Schneidman et al. 2003a; Bell 2003; Nirenberg et al. 2001;Williams and Beer 2010) have proposed measures for quantifying synergy, but there remains no consensus which measure is most valid.
