A maximum entropy copula is the copula associated with the joint distribution, with prescribed marginal distributions on
which maximizes the Tsallis–Havrda–Chavát entropy with
We find necessary and sufficient conditions for each maximum entropy copula to be a copula in the class introduced in Rodríguez-Lallena and Úbeda-Flores (2004), and we also show that each copula in that class is a maximum entropy copula.
