@Robert Israel: +1 Thank you for your comments. So from what I understand, I posted another snippet of the code. Could you please tell me if I am on the right page? Basically, instead of the all-or-none scenario, what I am now doing is calculating the probability for each neighbor within a node's vicinity.

comment How to compute KL-divergence when PMF contains 0s?
Very deep and insightful answer. Thank you so much. I have recently found out about the Jensen-Shannon divergence metric and am trying to understand if I could utilize that instead. The paper "Divergence Measures Based on the Shannon Entropy" explains that this metric does not face the same issues as the KL-divergence metric. If you have any suggestions on this, it would be a great addition to your already insightful answer. Thank you for your time.

comment How to compute KL-divergence when PMF contains 0s?
@Ashok: Yes. You are right. It looks like KL-divergence requires that both the PMFs be absolutely continuous with respect to each other. In my case, the second case of infinity is a problem. In my calculation, the histograms contain empty bins which I am not able to understand how to handle.

comment How do I approach Optimal Control?
@Gilead: That's great to hear. Could you point me towards some good optimization theory material in that case? I've been Googling but am not sure if I'm starting with the right ones...
