Loop Series and Bethe Variational Bounds in Attractive Graphical Models

NeurIPS 2007 Alan S. WillskyErik B. SudderthMartin J. Wainwright

Variational methods are frequently used to approximate or bound the partition or likelihood function of a Markov random field. Methods based on mean field theory are guaranteed to provide lower bounds, whereas certain types of convex relaxations provide upper bounds... (read more)
