comment Mutual Information: Are these two equations equal?
"entropy in this equation is calculated similarly to the above one, except that there is not a negative symbol" Are you sure about that? That looks weird to me.

comment How to calculate entropy from a set of samples?
Then you shouldn't refer to that definition of entropy, that's for discrete variables

comment Generating a random matrix with all eigenvalues equal to one
"one method to generate matrices with given eigenvalues ...(etc)" applies only to diagonalizable matrices (even more restrictive: normal matrices). But if a diagonalizable matrix has all ones eingevalues, then it's the identity. Then that method is useless here.

comment Distribution of the summation of k random variables and k is also variable
No, I don't think you can avoid the convolution. Recall only that if you use CF (characteristic functions) it might be simpler, because convolutions translate to products.
