function [D_alpha] = estimate_Dalpha(X,Y,co)
%Estimates D_alpha = \int p^{\alpha}(x)q^{1-\alpha}(x)dx, the Renyi and the Tsallis divergences are simple functions of this quantity.
%
%INPUT:
% X: X(:,t) is the t^th sample from the first distribution.
% Y: Y(:,t) is the t^th sample from the second distribution.
% co: cost object (structure).
