### Abstract

Convexity properties of entropy-like functionals on states of a finite dimensional algebra are discussed. The treatment covers both the quantum mechanical and the classical cases. The purpose is to generalize Lieb's convexity theorem and the monotonicity of the relative entropy using the Jensen inequality of operator convex functions. From the quasi-entropies defined here the quantum version of Rényi's α- entropies can be deduced.
