Paper Abstract

In this work, we study methods of entropy and relative entropy estimation for classical and quantum information sources. We show that algorithms and methods for classical entropy estimation can be effectively used in constructing algorithms for quantum entropy estimation. Specifically, we look at the entropy estimation for a broad class of stationary ergodic processes and obtain important bounds on estimator's variance and mathematical expectation as well as analyze their asymptotic behavior.
