The time evolution process of thermodynamic entropy , multiplicity entropy , and configuration entropy at the relativistic heavy-ion collisions is studied using the AMPT model to generate central Au + Au collision events. By superimposing the three kinds of information entropy, we can get a complete information entropy of the system to describe the physical process of the relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The results show that the four stages of the time evolution process of the system entropy S seem to correspond to the four physical processes in the relativistic heavy-ion collision, indicating that the total entropy of the system can reflect the physical information more accurately in the relativistic heavy-ion collision. This also shows that Shannon information entropy does provides an effective tool to study the evolution process in the relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
