We consider the concept of generalized Kolmogorov–Sinai entropy, where instead of the Shannon entropy function, we consider an arbitrary concave function defined on the unit interval, vanishing in the origin. Under mild assumptions on this function, we show that this isomorphism invariant is linearly dependent on the Kolmogorov–Sinai entropy.
