# Nuclear data evaluation with Bayesian networks

@inproceedings{Schnabel2021NuclearDE, title={Nuclear data evaluation with Bayesian networks}, author={Georg Schnabel and Roberto Capote and Arjan J. Koning and David Brown}, year={2021} }

Bayesian networks are graphical models to represent the deterministic and probabilistic relationships between variables within the Bayesian framework. The knowledge of all variables can be updated using new information about some of the variables. The Bayesian Generalized Linear Least Squares method can be regarded as an inference method for Bayesian networks of variables with multivariate normal priors and linear relationships between them. We show that relying explicitly on the Bayesian…
