Probabilistic specialist platforms emphasizes the fundamental computational rules that make probabilistic reasoning possible in specialist platforms. the main to computation in those platforms is the modularity of the probabilistic version. Shafer describes and compares the primary architectures for exploiting this modularity within the computation of previous and posterior chances. He additionally shows how those comparable but various architectures practice to a wide selection of alternative difficulties of recursive computation in utilized arithmetic and operations study.

The box of probabilistic professional structures has persevered to flourish because the writer introduced his lectures at the subject in June 1992, however the knowing of join-tree architectures has remained lacking from the literature. This monograph fills this void through supplying an research of join-tree equipment for the computation of past and posterior chances in trust nets. those tools, pioneered within the mid to overdue Nineteen Eighties, remain important to the speculation and perform of probabilistic specialist structures. as well as merely probabilistic professional structures, join-tree equipment also are utilized in specialist platforms in response to Dempster–Shafer trust capabilities or on risk measures. adaptations also are used for computation in relational databases, in linear optimization, and in constraint delight.

This e-book describes probabilistic specialist structures in a extra rigorous and targeted approach than latest literature, and offers an annotated bibliography that incorporates tips to meetings and software program. additionally incorporated are workouts that may support the reader start to discover the matter of generalizing from likelihood to broader domain names of recursive computation.

Probabilistic Expert Systems (CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics)

Probabilistic professional platforms emphasizes the elemental computational rules that make probabilistic reasoning possible in professional platforms. the most important to computation in those platforms is the modularity of the probabilistic version. Shafer describes and compares the critical architectures for exploiting this modularity within the computation of past and posterior percentages.

Surveys in Differential-Algebraic Equations III

The current quantity contains survey articles on a number of fields of Differential-Algebraic Equations (DAEs), that have frequent functions in managed dynamical platforms, specially in mechanical and electric engineering and a powerful relation to (ordinary) differential equations. the person chapters supply stories, shows of the present country of study and new suggestions in - Flexibility of DAE formulations - Reachability research and deterministic international optimization - Numerical linear algebra tools - Boundary price difficulties the implications are awarded in an available variety, making this ebook compatible not just for lively researchers but additionally for graduate scholars (with a great wisdom of the fundamental rules of DAEs) for self-study.

In an international context of accountability and performativity, building knowledge on progression for learners across contexts is of tremendous value, and particularly significant when pressure from national governments, and South Africa is no exception here, is on relatively instant improvements in performance. Part III chapters focus on issues of language and learning, so critical in a multilingual context like South Africa, where, as noted, English remains, indeed becomes increasingly hegemonic, as the language of access to social and economic goods.

In the South African landscape, the large-­ scale systemic Annual National Assessment (ANA) is a relatively recent introduction, having only been run at scale since 2011. The Government introduced the ANA to monitor and improve the levels of educational outcomes in the schooling system with aims encompassing the following: (1) to expose teachers to better assessment practices, (2) to make it easier M.
