Synthesis Lectures on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning 23. San Rafael, CA: Morgan & Claypool Publishers (ISBN 978-1-62705-197-2/pbk; 978-1-62705-198-9/ebook). xiv, 177 p. (2013).
The book presents a comprehensive coverage of the primary exact algorithms for reasoning with graphical models, such as Bayesian and constraint networks, influence diagrams, Markov decision processes. Throughout the book, inference-based, message-passing schemes, and search-based, and conditioning schemes are presented. The book targets mainly an audience composed of researchers and students in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
