Abstract: A divergence function is a skew-symmetric distance like function on a manifold. In the geometric theory
of statistical inference, such a divergence function is useful. In complex systems, Tsallis anomalous statistics is
developing rapidly. A q-exponential family is an important statistical model in Tsallis statistics. For this q-exponential
family, a divergence function is constructed from the viewpoint of affine differential geometry.
