Asymptotic behaviour of the weighted Renyi and Fisher entropies in a Bayesian problem

Consider a Bayesian problem of success probability estimation in a series of conditionally independent trials with binary outcomes. We study the asymptotic behaviour of the weighted differential entropy for posterior probability density function conditional on x successes after n conditionally independent trials when n tends to infinity. Suppose that one is interested to know whether the coin is approximately fair with a high precision and for large n is interested in the true frequency. In other words, the statistical decision is particularly sensitive in small neighbourhood of the particular value γ = 1/2. For this aim the concept of weighted differential entropy used when the frequency γ is necessary to emphasize. It was found that the weight in suggested form does not change the asymptotic form of Shannon, Renyi, Tsallis and Fisher entropies, but changes the constants. The leading term in weighted Fisher Information is changed by some constant which depends on distance between the true frequency and the value we want to emphasize.
