Notes on Differential Entropy of Mixtures
2008 (English)Report (Other academic)
This report proves that the differential entropy of particle mixtures is equal to -∞ unlike the wrong claim in the literature that is equal to the discrete entropy of particle weights. It then gives an upper bound for the differential entropy of the Gaussian mixtures which can be used in practical applications.
