Beta-divergence as a subclass of Bregman divergence


In this paper, we present a complete proof that the beta-divergence is a particular case of Bregman divergence. This little-known result makes it possible to straightforwardly apply theorems about Bregman divergences to beta-divergences. This is of interest for numerous applications since these divergences are widely used, for instance in non-negative matrix factorization (NMF).
