Resumen:
In connection with the uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics (Heisenberg) or in time-frequency analysis (Heisenberg-Gabor), we study its formulation in terms of entropic inequalities, extending results recently derived by Bialynicki-Birula [1] and Zozor et al. [2]. These results can be considered as generalizations of the Heisenberg inequalities in the sense that they measure the mutual uncertainty of a random variable (or wave function) and its conjugated random variable (or Fourier transformed wave function) through their associated R¨¦nyi entropies with conjugated indexes. We consider here the more general case where the entropic indexes are not conjugated, in both cases where the state space is discrete and continuous: we discuss the existence of an uncertainty inequality depending on the location of the entropic indexes alpha and beta in the plane (alpha, beta). Our results explain and extend a recent study by Luis [3], where states with quantum fluctuations below the Gaussian case are discussed at the single point (2, 2). et al. [2].
