    • Symmetrizing the Kullback-Leibler Distance 

      Johnson, Don; Sinanovic, Sinan (2001-03-20)
      We define a new distance measure - the resistor-average distance - between two probability distributions that is closely related to the Kullback-Leibler distance. While the Kullback-Leibler distance is asymmetric in the two distributions, the resistor-average distance is not. It arises from geometric considerations similar to those used to derive the ...
