The Rényi entropy of general order unifies the well-known Shannon entropy with several other entropy notions, like the min-entropy or collision entropy. In contrast to the Shannon entropy, there seems to be no commonly accepted definition for the conditional Rényi entropy: several versions have been proposed and used in the literature. In this paper, we reconsider the definition for the conditional Rényi entropy of general order as proposed by Arimoto in the seventies. We show that this… CONTINUE READING
