To fully characterize the information that two source variables carry about a third target variable, one must decompose the total information into redundant, unique, and synergistic components, i.e., obtain a partial information decomposition (PID). However, Shannon's theory of information does not provide formulas to fully determine these quantities. Several recent studies have begun addressing this. Some possible definitions for PID quantities have been proposed and some analyses have been… CONTINUE READING
