We use the relative modular operator to define a generalized relative entropy for any convex operator function g on (0,∞) satisfying g(1)=0. We show that these convex operator functions can be partitioned into convex subsets, each of which defines a unique symmetrized relative entropy, a unique family (parametrized by density matrices) of continuous monotone Riemannian metrics, a unique geodesic distance on the space of density matrices, and a unique monotone operator function satisfying…
