Abstract

top
Kullback's relative information and Kerridge's inaccuracy are two information-theoretic measures associated with a pair of probability distributions of a discrete random variable. The authors study a generalized measure which in particular contains a parametric generalization of relative information and inaccuracy. Some important properties of this generalized measure along with an inversion theorem are also studied.
