Exploring the entropy region

2021-10-18 14:00

Abstract: The entropy region consists of the entropies of the marginal distributions of some tuples of discrete random variables. Its structure is mostly unknown, and only three general methods are known which can potentially explore it. These methods are based on the copy lemma of Zhang and Yeung, the Ahlswede-Korner lemma, and the maximal entropy principle, respectively. After discussing how these methods work, we show that, surprisingly, the first one is more general than the other two.
