Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to compute the conditional entropy H(A | B,C), given probability distributions for each of the variables.

It would be nice to have a right-hand side not involving conditionals. H(A|B) = H(A,B) - H(B) but how does it work out if there are more than one conditional variable?

I tried, as a dumb guess, H(A,B,C) - H(B,C), but from using it further down the line, I doubt that's correct.

Thanks!
