Graphical models. Methods for data analysis and mining. (English) Zbl 1017.62002
Chichester: Wiley. viii, 358 p. (2002).
This book is positioned at the bounary between two highly important research areas: data analysis with graphical models and data mining, also called knowledge discovery in databases. It focuses on learning graphical models from data, thus exploiting the recognized advantages of graphical models for data analysis and mining. Its special feature is that it is not restricted to probabilistic models like Bayesian and Markov networks. It also explores relational graphical models, which provide didactical means to explain the ideas underlying graphical models. In addition, possibilistic graphical models are studied.
