comment Proving a triangle inequality for some divergence
Hi Johannes, I should have made it clearer perhaps, but the $\alpha$ is the prior of $P$, and therefore we naturally have symmetry, as in $V(\alpha, P, Q) = V(1-\alpha, Q, P)$

Thanks! Interestingly, the average portion of $N$ that is not sampled approaches $1/e$ as $N$ goes to infinity...

If you could elaborate... the probability that a specific item is not sampled in $N$ draws is $[(N-1)/N]^N$.

Thanks much, @did. I am processing it...

Both identities are not clear (to me) how they were reached. If you could include earlier stages I might be able to modify the solution to apply to the discrete RV I described above.

If I knew the exact stages myself I would not have bothered anyone to provide the solution. Thanks anyway.

comment Probability mass function undefined
The reason I want to see all the stages is that my model also has $(X_i)$ as discrete $i.i.id$ RVs with $P(0)=(1-p_i)^2$, $P(1)=2p_i(1-p_i)$, $P(2)=p_i^2$.

Thanks much, @did. Is there any way you could elaborate on the preceding stages of this, so I could see how it was arrived at?

You provided a good lead, thanks, but maybe someone could provide the solution.

OK, thanks, the pgf works only for $a_i=1$ using a little trick (and useful only if each $X_i$ has a $p_i$)..

Yes, will correct it in the OP.
