Maximum Entropy Distributions: Bit Complexity and Stability

6 Nov 2017Damian StraszakNisheeth K. Vishnoi

Maximum entropy distributions with discrete support in $m$ dimensions arise in machine learning, statistics, information theory, and theoretical computer science. While structural and computational properties of max-entropy distributions have been extensively studied, basic questions such as: Do max-entropy distributions over a large support (e.g., $2^m$) with a specified marginal vector have succinct descriptions (polynomial-size in the input description)?..
