Randomized Optimum Models for Structured Prediction
One approach to modeling structured discrete data is to describe the probability of states via an energy function and Gibbs distribution. A recurring difficulty in these models is...

A Stick-Breaking Likelihood for Categorical Data Analysis with Latent Gaussian Models
The development of accurate models and efficient algorithms for the analysis of multivariate categorical data are important and longstanding problems in machine learning and compu...

Sum-Product Networks: A New Deep Architecture
The key limiting factor in graphical model inference and learning is the complexity of the partition function. We thus ask the question: what are the most general conditions under...

Partition Functions of Normal Factor Graphs
—One of the most common types of functions in mathematics, physics, and engineering is a sum of products, sometimes called a partition function. After “normalization,” a sum ...

Unsupervised Bayesian Convex Deconvolution Based on a Field With an Explicit Partition Function
This paper proposes a non-Gaussian Markov field with a special feature: an explicit partition function. To the best of our knowledge, this is an original contribution. Moreover, th...

Proof of the oval conjecture for planar partition functions
We prove that the translation plane and the shift plane defined by a planar partition function form an oval pair of projective planes in the sense that the planes share a line pe...

Thermodynamics of RNA-RNA Binding
We present an extension of the standard partition function approach to RNA secondary structures that computes the probabilities Pu[i, j] that a sequence interval [i, j] is unpaired...

Adaptive Simulated Annealing: A Near-optimal Connection between Sampling and Counting
We present a near-optimal reduction from approximately counting the cardinality of a discrete set to approximately sampling elements of the set. An important application of our wo...
