The Fisher-Rao metric
Maybank, Stephen J. (2008) The Fisher-Rao metric. Mathematics Today 44 (6), pp. 255-257. ISSN 1361-2042.
The information in a mass of data is summarised by fitting to the data a probability density function (pdf) chosen from a parameterised family of pdfs. Distances between pairs of pdfs are calculated using the Fisher-Rao metric, which provides a measure of the accuracy with which parameter values can be estimated from the data. Applications of the Fisher-Rao metric include the calculation of Bayesian priors, machine learning and image processing.
