Abstract. In many situations, two or more sources have some information about a target. For instance, sensory input and context information can jointly determine the firing pattern of a neuron. Since the information from the two sources is typically not identical, one wishes to decompose it in those parts that are unique to each source, what is shared between them and what is complementary, that is, becomes useful only when the two sources are combined. This has been an active research topic in recent years, with some surprising findings.
