@article{Li2012AFF, title={A Framework for Solving Hybrid Influence Diagrams Containing Deterministic Conditional Distributions}, author={Yijing Li and Prakash P. Shenoy}, journal={Decision Analysis}, year={2012}, volume={9}, pages={55-75} }

We describe a framework and an algorithm for approximately solving a class of hybrid influence diagrams (IDs) containing discrete and continuous chance variables, discrete and continuous decision variables, and deterministic conditional distributions for chance variables. A conditional distribution for a chance variable is said to be deterministic if its variances, for each state of its parents, are all zeroes. The solution algorithm is an extension of Shenoy's fusion algorithm for discrete… CONTINUE READING
