Deeper understanding on the geometrical and operational meaning of sparsity and entropy

2020-11-17T13:29:19+02:00

Aalto’s Mobile Cloud Computing group deepens understanding on the geometrical and operational meaning of sparsity and entropy

In the past hundred years, the measures to compute sparsity, traditionally in the form of entropy, have been characterized and qualified from the physical or operational, and information theoretic perspectives.

In this paper, instead, a classical mathematical approach using equivalence relations has enabled a minimal characterization of sparsity. [...]
