Hello,

I am facing the following problem:

- I have distribution (or function) which depends on some parameter.

- I want to find the parameter whichminimizes the entropyof the distribution.

In the particular situation I am facing I really need to reformulate this problem in aentropy-problem.maximization

In other words, is it possible to find a P' for which maximizing its entropy, is equivalent to minimize the entropy of P?

Thanks in advance!
