© 2020 American Physical Society. We develop a framework to extend resource measures from one domain to a larger one. We find that all extensions of resource measures are bounded between two quantities that we call the minimal and maximal extensions. We discuss various applications of our framework. We show that any relative entropy (i.e., an additive function on pairs of quantum states that satisfies the data processing inequality) must be bounded by the min and max relative entropies. We prove that the generalized trace distance, the generalized fidelity, and the purified distance are optimal extensions. And in entanglement theory we introduce a technique to extend pure-state entanglement measures to mixed bipartite states.
