Mutual Information and Nonadditive Entropies: The Case of Tsallis Entropy

Authors: Amelia Carolina Sparavigna

Mutual information of two random variables can be easily obtained from their Shannon entropies. However, when nonadditive entropies are involved, the calculus of the mutual information is more complex. Here we discuss the basic matter about information from Shannon entropy. Then we analyse the case of the generalized nonadditive Tsallis entropy
