Abstract

This paper considers derivation of f-divergence inequalities via the approach of functional domination. Bounds on an f-divergence based on one or several other f-divergences are introduced, dealing with pairs of probability measures defined on arbitrary alphabets. In addition, a variety of bounds are shown to hold under boundedness assumptions on the relative information.1
