Algorithms for Influence Diagrams

  • Finn V. Jensen
Part of the Statistics for Engineering and Information Science book series (ISS)


An influence diagram has three types of nodes, chance nodes, decision nodes, and utility nodes. The set of chance nodes is denoted U C , the set of decision nodes is denoted U D , and the set of utility nodes is denoted U V . The universe is U = U C U D . We also refer to the members of U as the variables of the influence diagram.
