Propagate {BayesNetBP}R Documentation

Propagate the cluster tree

Description

This function propagates the discrete compartment of a ClusterTree object.

Usage

Propagate(tree, targets = NA)

Arguments

tree

an initialized ClusterTree object

targets

the cluster involved in evidence propagation, usually set by default

Details

The discrete compartment must be propagted to get the joint distributions of discrete variables in each discrete clusters. A ClusterTree object must be propagated before absorbing evidence and making queries.

Value

a ClusterTree object
