Paul, the binary entropy function is defined as h(x) = -p log(p) - (1 - p)
log(1 - p).  The log in this formula is binary logarithm.  Given that h(0) =
h(1) = 0, you can then execute the following commands to plot the graph you are
looking for:

h[x_] := - x * Log[2,x] - (1 - x) * Log[2,1 - x]
Plot[h[x], {x,0,1}]

Hope this helps.

Hi, a simple query. Do you know how could I plot the entropy function
in Mathematica? I wish to produce an image similar to this one:

Do you know how could I plot mutual information between two random
variables X and Y in a 3D surface in Mathematica?

Thanks!

Paul.
