Abstract (english): 
A recent canonical divergence, which is introduced on a smooth manifold M endowed with a general dualistic structure (g,∇,∇*), is considered for flat a-connections. In the classical setting, we compute such a canonical divergence on the manifold of positive measures and prove that it coincides with the classical α-divergence. In the quantum framework, the recent canonical divergence is evaluated for the quantum α-connections on the manifold of all positive definite Hermitian operators. In this case as well, we obtain that the recent canonical divergence is the quantum α-divergence.
