In a recent paper, we discussed normalized measures of entropy,13 i.e. measures of entropy all of which lie between 0 and 1. This leads to standardized measures which can be compared with one another. In the present paper, we discuss normalized measures of directed divergence, all of which lie between 0 and 1 and as such are comparable with one another.
