Graphical Models and Inference MT11
Overview of Lectures
These are the contents of 16 lectures in MT11.
Most of the topics discussed can be found in similar form in at least one of the following books:
Cowell, R. G., Dawid, A. P., Lauritzen, S. L. and Spiegelhalter, D. J. (1999) Probabilistic Networks and Expert Systems. Springer-Verlag, New York.
Edwards, D. (2000). Introduction to Graphical Modelling (2nd ed). Springer-Verlag, New York.
Lauritzen, S. L. (1996). Graphical Models. Oxford University Press, Oxford
Whittaker, J. (1990). Graphical Models in Applied Multivariate Statistics. Wiley, Chicester.
You might also find my Aalborg lecture notes helpful. Many others have, even though they are somewhat dated, originally written in 1979.
S. L. Lauritzen. Lectures on Contingency Tables. Univ. Cop. Inst. Math. Stat., 1979. 2nd ed. Aalborg University Press 1982. 3rd ed. Department of Mathematics, Aalborg 1989. Electronic edition 2002 (pdf).
In 2006 I gave lectures at the summerschool at Saint Flour, France. My overheads for those lectures are here. Currently I intend to write proper lecture notes for this course. An incomplete draft of these is available here, and you might find these helpful as well.
For graph-theoretic concepts, see either Lauritzen (1996) or the first chapter in
Bollobas, B. (1998). Modern Graph Theory. Springer, New York
