Generalization of Stam Inequalities leading to generalized Fisher-Rényi Complexity Measures

Abstract : Information-theoretic inequalities play a fundamental role in numerous scientific and technological areas: they generally express the impossibility to have a complete description of a system via a finite number of information measures. They gave rise to the design of various quantifiers of the internal complexity of a (quantum) system. In this presentation, I will introduce a parametric Fisher–Rényi complexity, named (p, β, λ)-Fisher–Rényi complexity, based on both an extension of the Fisher information and the Rényi entropies of a probability density function ρ characteristic of the system. This complexity measure quantifies the balance of the spreading and the gradient contents of ρ, and has the three main properties of a statistical complexity: the invariance under translation and scaling transformations, and a universal bounding from below. The latter is precisely on the core of this presentation, generalizing the so-called Stam inequality, which lowerbounds the product of the Shannon entropy power and the Fisher information of a probability density function. An extension of this inequality was already proposed by Bercher and Lutwak, a particular case of the general one, where the three parameters are linked, allowing to determine the sharp lower bound and the associated probability density with minimal complexity. Using the notion of differential-escort deformation, we are able to determine the sharp bound of the complexity measure even when the three parameters are decoupled. In addition, we determine the probability distribution that saturates the inequality, this last one involving an inverse incomplete beta function. Finally, the complexity measure is calculated for various quantum-mechanical states of the harmonic and hydrogenic systems, which are the two main prototypes of physical systems subject to a central potential.
