A pathway to multivariate Gaussian density

10/2007;
Source: arXiv

ABSTRACT A general principle called "conservation of the ellipsoid of concentration" is introduced and a generalized entropic form of order 'alpha' is optimized under this principle. It is shown that this can produce a density which can act as a pathway to multivariate Gaussian density. The resulting entropic pathway contains as special cases the Boltzmann-Gibbs (Shannon) and Tsallis (Havrda-Charvat) entropic forms.
