Statistical Inference for Quadratic Rényi Entropy

  title={Statistical Inference for Quadratic R{\'e}nyi Entropy},
  author={Nikolaj Leonenko and Oleg Seleznjev},
Abstract: Entropy and its various generalizations are widely used in mathematical statistics, communication theory, physical and computer sciences for characterizing the amount of information in a probability distribution. We consider estimators of the quadratic Rényi entropy and some related characteristics of discrete and continuous probability… CONTINUE READING
