function [H] = HShannon_Voronoi_estimation(Y,co)
%Estimates the Shannon entropy (H) of Y (Y(:,t) is the t^th sample) using Voronoi regions. Cost parameters are provided in the cost object co.
%We make use of the naming convention 'H<name>_estimation', to ease embedding new entropy estimation methods.
