### Abstract

Umegaki's relative entropy S(ω,φ{symbol})=Tr D_{ω}(log D_{ω}-log D_{φ{symbol}}) (of states ω and φ{symbol} with density operators D_{ω} and D_{φ{symbol}}, respectively) is shown to be an asymptotic exponent considered from the quantum hypothesis testing viewpoint. It is also proved that some other versions of the relative entropy give rise to the same asymptotics as Umegaki's one. As a byproduct, the inequality Tr A log AB ≧Tr A(log A+log B) is obtained for positive definite matrices A and B.
