SUMMARY. The Entropic uncertainty principle as outlined by Maassen and Uffink (1988) for a pair of non-degenerate observables in a finite level quantum system is generalized here to the case of a pair of arbitrary quantum measurements. In particular, our result includes not only the case of projective measurements (or equivalently, observables) exhibiting degeneracy but also an uncertainty principle for a single measurement.
