Asymptotic Behavior of Rényi Entropy in the Central Limit Theorem

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We explore an asymptotic behavior of Rényi entropy along convolutions in the central limit theorem with respect to the increasing number of i.i.d. summands. In particular, the problem of monotonicity is addressed under suitable moment hypotheses.
