I describe a language and set-up for proving monotonicity of entropy for families of interval maps which are defined locally. This can be seen as a local version of Thurston's algorithm. We apply this approach to prove the monotonicity and related results for families that are
not covered by other methods (with flat critical point, piecewise linear, Lorenz-type, Arnold family and others) . Joint work with Weixiao Shen and Sebastian van Strien.
