Abstract Unlike the usual definition of measures of information in terms of the relation between information and uncertainty, a different approach is followed in this paper, in which the relation between certainty and information plays a central role. Information measures are introduced with the help of certainty measures within this framework. This approach leads to three generalized classes of information measures and unifies the known measures of information into one generalized… CONTINUE READING
