32 /// Approximate inference algorithm "Fractional Belief Propagation" [\ref WiH03]
33 /** The Fractional Belief Propagation algorithm is like Belief
34 * Propagation, but associates each factor with a weight (scale parameter)
35 * which controls the divergence measure being minimized. Standard
36 * Belief Propagation corresponds to the case of FBP where each weight
37 * is 1. When cast as an EP algorithm, BP (and EP) minimize
38 * the inclusive KL-divergence, i.e. \f$\min_q KL(p||q)\f$ (note that the
39 * Bethe free energy is typically derived from \f$ KL(q||p) \f$). If each
40 * factor \a I has weight \f$ c_I \f$, then FBP minimizes the
41 * alpha-divergence with \f$ \alpha=1/c_I \f$ for that factor, which also
42 * corresponds to Power EP [\ref Min05].
43 *
44 * The messages \f$m_{I\to i}(x_i)\f$ are passed from factors \f$I\f$ to variables \f$i\f$.
45 * The update equation is given by:
46 * \f[ m_{I\to i}(x_i) \propto \left( \sum_{x_{N_I\setminus\{i\}}} f_I(x_I)^{1/c_I} \prod_{j\in N_I\setminus\{i\}} m_{I\to j}^{1-1/c_I} \prod_{J\in N_j\setminus\{I\}} m_{J\to j} \right)^{c_I} \f]
47 * After convergence, the variable beliefs are calculated by:
48 * \f[ b_i(x_i) \propto \prod_{I\in N_i} m_{I\to i} \f]
49 * and the factor beliefs are calculated by:
50 * \f[ b_I(x_I) \propto f_I(x_I)^{1/c_I} \prod_{j \in N_I} m_{I\to j}^{1-1/c_I} \prod_{J\in N_j\setminus\{I\}} m_{J\to j} \f]
51 * The logarithm of the partition sum is approximated by:
52 * \f[ \log Z = \sum_{I} \sum_{x_I} b_I(x_I) \big( \log f_I(x_I) - c_I \log b_I(x_I) \big) + \sum_{i} (c_i - 1) \sum_{x_i} b_i(x_i) \log b_i(x_i) \f]
53 * where the variable weights are defined as
54 * \f[ c_i := \sum_{I \in N_i} c_I \f]
55 *
56 * \todo Add nice way to set weights
