Information measure defined by (5) is called R´enyi’s information measure (of order q) or R´enyi’s entropy.
Information theory and generalized statistics
The f inite part (≡ Iq (F )) is fixed by the requirement (or by renormalization prescription) that it should fulfill the postulate of additivity in order to be identifiable with an information measure.
Information theory and generalized statistics
So by changing the q parameter R´enyie’s entropy “skims over” all renormalized unifractal Shannon’s entropies. R´enyi’s entropy thus provides a unified information measure which keeps track of all respective unifractal Shannon entropies.
