View source: R/EntropEst.r

Description

Returns the estimated asymptotic standard deviation for the Z estimator of Renyi's Entropy. Note that this is also the asymptotic standard deviation of the plug-in estimator. See Zhang and Grabchak (2014a) for details.

Usage

1
Renyi.sd(x, r)

Arguments

x

Vector of counts. Must be integer valued. Each entry represents the number of observations of a distinct letter.

r

Order of Renyi's entropy. Must be a strictly positive real number. Not allowed to be 1, in that case use Entropy.sd instead.
