We explore their relationship with various other entropy's and divergences using limits. We also study and determine their geometric properties such as continuity and convexity. Finally, using the positive and negative definite kernels, we investigate the metric property of our (r,s)-power divergences.
To try to combat this perception of the subject, I experimented with two artistic projects during my undergraduate degree: MathSoc Cartoons and Edu-Action!. In these projects, students produce artistic educational resources for their peers that give high-level overviews of complex math topics as supplements to traditional course materials. These resources include cartoons, posters and videos that explain ideas simply, demystify the theory with relevant applications and analogies, and incorporate colourful artwork and fun characters to make the material engaging.
In this poster we will explain design techniques in these resources that attempt to make the
material fun and easy to understand, the merits of different styles of resources, student
feedback on our work, and challenges we encountered along the way. In addition, we will
offer suggestions for how instructors can implement similar resources into their classes and
possible uses for these types of resources outside of math.
