Abstract

The Kullback relative-information measure and Kerridge's inaccuracy measure and their generalized forms are consequences of different forms of the branching property that these measures are required to satisfy. We consider a seemingly more generalized form and show that it does not lead to new measures. We also form a functional equation in two variables through this generalized branching property and show that this leads to the same result.
