The main reason for building a Bayesian network is to estimate the state of certain variables given some evidence. In Chapter 5, we gave methods that made it easy to access P(A | e) for any variable A. However, this may not be sufficient. It may be crucial to establish the joint probability for a set of variables. Section 6.2 gives a general method for calculating P(V | e) for any set V of variables.
