Abstract: In this article we propose a simple method to estimate the Kolmogorov complexity of a finite word written over a finite alphabet. Usually it is estimated by the ratio of the length of a word’s archive to the original length of the word. This approach is not satisfactory for the theory of information because it does not give an abstract measure. Moreover Kolmogorov complexity approach is not satisfactory in the practical tasks of the compressibility estimation because it measures the potential compressibility by means of the compression itself. There is another measure of a word’s complexity - subword complexity, which is equal to the number of different subwords in the word. We show the computation difficulties connected with the usage of subword complexity and propose a new simple measure of a word’s complexity, which is practically convenient development of the notion of subword complexity.
