This is my misunderstanding: Frieden obtains Lagrangian by minmizing the
Fisher information I, which decreases, as time goes to infinity, to a
minimum that is an equivalent of an equilibrium. This, by Cramer-Rao

e^2 I >= 1,

means that the minimum of the error e becomes the largest. His equilibrium
corresponds to the state with maximum entropy.
