Graphs provide an excellent framework for interrogating symmetric models of measurement random variables and discovering their implied conditional independence structure. However, it is not unusual for a model to be specified from a description of how a process unfolds (i.e. via its event tree), rather than through relationships between a given set of… (More)

The class of chain event graph models is a generalisation of the class of discrete Bayesian networks, retaining most of the structural advantages of the Bayesian network for model interrogation, propagation and learning, while more naturally encoding asymmetric state spaces and the order in which events happen. In this paper we demonstrate how with complete… (More)

Bayesian networks (BNs) are useful for coding conditional independence statements, especially in discrete symmetric models. On the other hand, event trees (ETs) are convenient for representing asymmetric structure and how situations unfold. In this paper we report the development of a new graph-ical framework called the chain event graph (CEG). For… (More)

BACKGROUND
Picoeukaryotes represent an important, yet poorly characterized component of marine phytoplankton. The recent genome availability for two species of Ostreococcus and Micromonas has led to the emergence of picophytoplankton comparative genomics. Sequencing has revealed many unexpected features about genome structure and led to several hypotheses… (More)

In this paper we investigate the geometry of the likelihood of the unknown parameters in a simple class of Bayesian directed graphs with hidden variables. This enables us, before any numerical algorithms are employed, to obtain certain insights in the nature of the uniden tifiability inherent in such models, the way posterior densities will be sensitive to… (More)

a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t The search for a useful explanatory model based on a Bayesian Network (BN) now has a long and successful history. However, when the dependence structure between the variables of the problem is asymmetric then this cannot be captured by the BN. The Chain Event Graph (CEG) provides a richer class of models which… (More)

A Chain Event Graph (CEG) is a graphial model which designed to embody conditional independencies in problems whose state spaces are highly asymmetric and do not admit a natural product structure. In this paer we present a probability propagation algorithm which uses the topology of the CEG to build a transporter CEG. Intriungly,the transporter CEG is… (More)
