Caputo and Riemann—Liouville Fractional Approximation of Csiszar’s f–Divergence

  • George A. Anastassiou

Here are presented various tight probabilistic inequalities that give nearly best estimates for the Csiszar’s f-divergence. These involve Riemann—Liouville and Caputo fractional derivatives of the directing function f. Also is given a lower bound for the Csiszar’s distance. The Csiszar’s discrimination is the most essential and general measure for the comparison between two probability measures. This is a continuation of Chapter 22 and is based on [55].
