%Initialization of power spectral density representation and Szego's theorem based Shannon differential entropy (H) estimator.
%   1)The estimator is treated as a cost object (co).
%   2)We use the naming convention 'H<name>_initialization' to ease embedding new entropy estimation methods.
%   mult: is a multiplicative constant relevant (needed) in the estimation; '=1' means yes, '=0' no.
%   co: cost object (structure).
