This demo visually illustrates how NTLS works.
Sequences of symbols (each symbol is considered as an individual state) can be entered in the first textbox, one sequence per line.
Then push the "Run NTLS" button to see the results of the application of the algorithm.
A figure representing the evolution of the state entropy distribution is also automatically computed.
