Max-Product Belief Propagation for Linear Programming: Applications to Combinatorial Optimization

16 Dec 2014Sejun ParkJinwoo Shin

The max-product {belief propagation} (BP) is a popular message-passing heuristic for approximating a maximum-a-posteriori (MAP) assignment in a joint distribution represented by a graphical model (GM). In the past years, it has been shown that BP can solve a few classes of linear programming (LP) formulations to combinatorial optimization problems including maximum weight matching, shortest path and network flow, i.e., BP can be used as a message-passing solver for certain combinatorial optimizations...
