Abstract An approach to use Bayesian belief networks in optimization is presented, with an illustration on resource and environmental management. A belief network is constructed to work parallel to a deterministic model, and it is used to update conditional probabilities associated with different components of that model. The divergence between prior and posterior probability distributions at the model components is used as an indication on the inconsistency between model structure, parameter… CONTINUE READING
