Abstract: In the present paper, we propose a large sample asymptotic approximation for the sampling and posterior distributions of differential entropy when the sample is composed of independent and identically distributed realization of a multivariate normal distribution.
Keywords: differential entropy; large sample; asymptotic approximation; multivariate normal distribution; sampling distribution; posterior distribution; mutual information; multiinformation; total correlation; multivariate constraint
