Keywords: Maximum Entropy | Maximum Likelihood | Kappa Distribution | Lagrange Multiplier

The two statistical principles of maximum entropy and maximum likelihood are investigated for the three-parameter kappa distribution. These two methods become equivalent in the discrete case with x, β>0 where 0<α=1/(2k+1)≤1, k=0,1,2…or the maximum entropy method.
