Gibbs-Shannon Entropy and Related Measures: Tsallis Entropy

EasyChair Preprint no. 866

8 pagesDate: March 31, 2019


In this research paper, it is proved that an approximation to Gibbs-Shannon entropy
measure naturally leads to Tsallis entropy for the real parameter q =2 . Several interesting
measures based on the input as well as output of a discrete memoryless channel are provided
and some of the properties of those measures are discussed. It is expected that these results will
be of utility in Information Theoretic research.

Keyphrases: Gibbs entropy, information theory, Shannon entropy, statistical measures, Tsallis entropy
