Response to “Comment on “Entropy and complexity analysis of hydrogenic Rydberg atoms” [J. Math. Phys. 58, 104101 (2017)]. (English) Zbl 1373.81115
From the text: In their comment [J. Math. Phys. 58, No. 10, 104101, 4 p. (2017; Zbl 1373.81110)] on our paper [S. López-Rosa et al., J. Math. Phys. 54, No. 5, 052109, 18 p. (2013; Zbl 1282.81054)], L. G. Jiao and L. R. Zan argued that the expressions used for the Crámer-Rao complexity in both position and momentum spaces are incorrect due to the wrong definition of variance. Specifically they point out that: (1) the correct form of this complexity in position space is presented exactly in their work; (2) in momentum space, two different definitions of the variance are provided and corresponding Crámer-Rao complexities are discussed separately.
There are two underlying issues in the Jiao-Zan comment to our paper1 which are certainly controverted, but not yet fully solved. One is the extension to arbitrary dimensions of the notion of variance of a one-dimensional probability distribution \(\rho(x)\), corresponding to some random variable \(X\) (e.g., position, momentum, …) (see, e.g. M. J. W. Hall[Phys. Rev A 59, No. 4. 2602–2615 (1999: doi:10.1103/PhysRevA.59.2602)] and A. Demboet al. [IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory 37, No. 6, 1501–1518 (1991; Zbl 0741.94001)]), that is, to a probability distribution \(\rho(\vec{r})\) of a D-dimensional observable \(\vec{r}\). Another issue is the definition of the Crámer-Rao complexity so that it approaches as close as possible the intuitive notion of complexity [L. Rudnicki et al., Phys. Lett. A 380, No. 3, 377–380 (2016; Zbl 1349.81065)].
