Derivation from First Principles of Belief Values Generated in Networks by Message Passing


Some basic assumptions about the propagation of belief in the normal mode operation of system components in an arithmetic network are identified. They lead naturally to a message passing paradigm that propagates local computations throughout the system, and they are applicable to the quantification of reasoning in the presence of uncertainty in other contexts.
