An entropy-based measure for comparing distributions

June 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this talk, I will develop an entropy-based measure called case-based entropy which can be used to compare the diversity of distributions. The measure is based on computing the support of a Shannon-equivalent equi-probable distribution. It also has the capacity to compare whole or parts of distribution in a scale-free manner. I will develop the main idea from scratch and will keep the talk accessible to graduate students and researchers alike. The utility of the measure is still being explored,…
