    Lévy distribution differential entropy.

    The differential entropy (in nats) for a Lévy random variable with location μ and scale c > 0 is

    Differential entropy for a Lévy distribution.

    where γ is the Euler-Mascheroni constants.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-levy-entropy

    Usage

    var entropy = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-levy-entropy' );

    entropy( mu, c )

    Returns the differential entropy for a Lévy distribution with location parameter mu and scale parameter c (in nats).

    var y = entropy( 2.0, 1.0 );
    // returns ~3.324
    
    y = entropy( 0.0, 1.0 );
    // returns ~3.324
    
    y = entropy( -1.0, 4.0 );
    // returns ~4.711

    If provided NaN as any argument, the function returns NaN.

    var y = entropy( NaN, 1.0 );
    // returns NaN
    
    y = entropy( 0.0, NaN );
    // returns NaN

    If provided c <= 0, the function returns NaN.

    var y = entropy( 0.0, 0.0 );
    // returns NaN
    
    y = entropy( 0.0, -1.0 );
    // returns NaN

    Examples

    var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
    var entropy = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-levy-entropy' );
    
    var mu;
    var c;
    var y;
    var i;
    
    for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
        mu = ( randu()*10.0 ) - 5.0;
        c = randu() * 20.0;
        y = entropy( mu, c );
        console.log( 'µ: %d, c: %d, h(X;µ,c): %d', mu.toFixed( 4 ), c.toFixed( 4 ), y.toFixed( 4 ) );
    }
