2015 arXiv   pre-print
We show a general relation between the spatially disjoint product of probability density functions and the sum of their Fisher information metric tensors.  ...  We then utilise this result to give a method for constructing the probability density functions for an arbitrary Riemannian Fisher information metric tensor.  ...  Suppose we desire a family of probability density functions whose Fisher information metric is the metric tensor of S 2 .  ...

Classical and quantum Fisher information in the geometrical formulation of quantum mechanics

Paolo Facchi, Ravi Kulkarni, V.I. Man'ko, Giuseppe Marmo, E.C.G. Sudarshan, Franco Ventriglia
2010 Physics Letters A  
By putting these two aspects together, we show that the Fisher information metric, both classical and quantum, can be described by means of the Hermitian tensor on the manifold of pure states.  ...  The tomographic picture of quantum mechanics has brought the description of quantum states closer to that of classical probability and statistics.  ...  In classical probability theory the Fisher information metric can be used to characterize the distance between probability distributions.  ...

A study on some geometrical and statistical properties of the continuous power-law distribution with a comparison of similar properties of a particular exponential distribution

2021 Journal of the National Science Foundation of Sri Lanka  
A continuous real random variable x with a power-law distribution has a probability p(x) of taking a value in the interval from x to x + dx, where, 2 by 〈 〉 .  ...  Finally, an example of an exponential distribution having the same information divergence and Fisher information as that of power-law distributions is given, thus having the same lower bound in the Cramer-Rao  ...  We also hope that the same Fisher information for power-law and exponential distributions we have obtained will definitely be helpful to understand the geometry of such networks.  ...

Quantum and Fisher information from the Husimi and related distributions

Paul B. Slater

Information metric from a linear sigma model

U. Miyamoto, S. Yahikozawa
2012 Physical Review E  
The idea that a spacetime metric emerges as a Fisher-Rao 'information metric' of instanton moduli space has been examined in several field theories such as the Yang-Mills theories and nonlinear sigma models  ...  In this brief paper, we report that the flat Euclidean or Minkowskian metric, rather than an anti-de Sitter metric that generically emerges from instanton moduli spaces, can be obtained as the Fisher-Rao  ...  Fund of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan (Young Scientists (B) 22740176).  ...

Extending the Fisher metric to density matrices [article]

D. Petz, Cs. Sudar
2001 arXiv   pre-print
Chentsov studied Riemannian metrics on the set of probability measures from the point of view of decision theory.  ...  He proved that up to a constant factor the Fisher information is the only metric which is monotone under stochastic transformations.  ...  Without some restrictions this would be pointless, the emphasis is put on statisticaly relevant metrics which on the submanifold of probability distributions recover the Fisher information metric. 2 Chentsov's  ...

The information metric on the moduli space of instantons with global symmetries

Emanuel Malek, Jeff Murugan, Jonathan P. Shock
2016 Physics Letters B  
In this note we revisit Hitchin's prescription Hitchin of the Fisher metric as a natural measure on the moduli space of instantons that encodes the space-time symmetries of a classical field theory.  ...  Motivated by the idea of the moduli space of supersymmetric instantons as an emergent space in the sense of the gauge/gravity duality, we extend the prescription to encode also global symmetries of the  ...  In addition we are grateful for insight from Tslil Clingman, Johanna Erdmenger, Hiroaki Matsueda, Andrew Singleton, Koenraad Schalm and David Tong.  ...

Information geometry in quantum field theory: lessons from simple examples [article]

Johanna Erdmenger, Kevin T. Grosvenor, Ro Jefferson
2020 arXiv   pre-print
By studying their Fisher metrics, we derive some general lessons that may have important implications for the application of information geometry in holography.  ...  We then investigate what information the Fisher metric retains about the physics of the underlying theory by studying the geometry for both the classical 2d Ising model and the corresponding 1d free fermion  ...  By the Fisher metric here, we mean the generalization of the definition of the Fisher metric in which the real-valued probability distribution p is simply replaced with a density matrix ρ and the integral  ...
