Many methods have been proposed in the literature to assess the probability of a sum of products. This problem has been shown computationaly hard (namely #Phard). Therefore, algorithms to solve it can be compare only from a practical point of view. In this article, we propose first an efficient implementation of the pivotal decomposition method. This kind of algorithms is widely used in the Artificial Intelligence framework. It is unfortunately almost never considered in the reliability… CONTINUE READING
