Here is a simple equation that allows the quantification of information in various systems. It could be based upon a relatively closed system, or relative to system differentials. This equation also asserts that information (structure and thereby function) is directly yet inversely related to Entropy. This particular example is based upon physical/mechanical perspectives of entropy (hence, thermodynamics, u.i. infodynamics).
