dc.description.abstract The existence and exact form of the continuum expression of the discrete nonlogarithmic q-entropy is an important open problem in generalized thermostatistics, since its possible lack implies that nonlogarithmic qentropy is irrelevant for the continuous classical systems. In this work, we show how the discrete nonlogarithmic q-entropy in fact converges in the continuous limit and the negative of the q-entropy with continuous variables is demonstrated to lead to the (Csiszar type) q-relative entropy just as the relation between the continuous Boltzmann-Gibbs expression and the Kullback-Leibler relative entropy. As a result, we conclude that there is no obstacle for the applicability of the q-entropy to the continuous classical physical systems. en_US
