# Abstract:

Several new examples of divergences emerged in the recent literature called blended divergences. Mostly these examples are constructed by the modification or parametrization of the old well-known phi-divergences. Newly introduced parameter is often called blending parameter. In this paper we present compact theory of blended divergences which provides us with a generally applicable method for finding new classes of divergences containing any two divergences $D_0$ and $D_1$ given in advance. Several examples of blends of well-known divergences are given.
