function [I] = ITsallis_DTsallis_estimation(Y,ds,co)
%Estimates Tsallis mutual information (I) based on Tsallis divergence. The estimation is carried out using the formula: I(y^1,...,y^M) = D(f_y,\prod_{m=1}^M f_{y^m}).
%   1)We use the naming convention 'I<name>_estimation' to ease embedding new mutual information estimation methods.
%   2)This is a meta method: the Tsallis divergence estimator can be arbitrary.
%   Y: Y(:,t) is the t^th sample.
%  ds: subspace dimensions.
%  co: mutual information estimator object.
