%function [co] = KEJR2_DJR_initialization(mult,post_init)
%Initialization of the exponentiated Jensen-Renyi kernel-2 estimator defined according to the relation: 
%K_EJR2(f_1,f_2) = exp[-u x D_JR(f_1,f_2)], where D_JR is the Jensen-Renyi divergence, u>0.
%   1)The estimator is treated as a cost object (co).
%   2)We use the naming convention 'K<name>_initialization' to ease embedding new estimators for kernels on distributions.
%   3)This is a meta method: the Jensen-Renyi divergence estimator can arbitrary.
%   mult: is a multiplicative constant relevant (needed) in the estimation; '=1' means yes, '=0' no.
%   post_init: {field_name1,field_value1,field_name2,field_value2,...}; cell array containing the names and the values of the cost object fields that are to be used
%   (instead of their default values). For further details, see 'post_initialization.m'.
%   co: cost object (structure).

%mandatory fields: = 'EJR2_DJR';
    co.mult = mult;
%other fields:
    co.u = 1; %assumption: u>0

%post initialization (put it _before_ initialization of the members in case of a meta estimator):    
    if nargin==2 %there are given (name,value) cost object fields
        co = post_initialization(co,post_init);

%initialization of the member(s):
    co.member_co = D_initialization(co.member_name,mult,{'alpha',co.alpha,'w',[1/2,1/2]}); %{'alpha',co.alpha}: the 'alpha' and 'w' fields of the member are also set here. if the Jensen-Shannon divergence estimator is restricted to w=[1/2, 1/2], then of course '{'w',[1/2,1/2]}' can be discarded.
