The notion of entropy is ubiquitous both in natural and social sciences. In the last two decades, a considerable effort has been devoted to the study of new entropic forms, which generalize the standard Boltzmann-Gibbs (BG) entropy and are widely applicable in thermodynamics, quantum mechanics and information theory. In [25], by extending previous ideas of Shannon [40, 41], Khinchin proposed a characterization of the BG entropy, based on four requirements, nowadays known as the Shannon-Khinchin… CONTINUE READING
