### Abstract Value Members

1. abstract val dependentAlgorithm: (Universe, List[NamedEvidence[_]]) ⇒ () ⇒ Double

The algorithm to compute probability of specified evidence in a dependent universe.

The algorithm to compute probability of specified evidence in a dependent universe. We use () => Double to represent this algorithm instead of an instance of ProbEvidenceAlgorithm. Typical usage is to return the result of ProbEvidenceAlgorithm.computeProbEvidence when invoked.

2. abstract val dependentUniverses: List[(Universe, List[NamedEvidence[_]])]

4. abstract val semiring: LogConvertibleSemiRing[Double]

Since BP uses division to compute messages, the semiring has to have a division function defined and must be log convertable.

Since BP uses division to compute messages, the semiring has to have a division function defined and must be log convertable. Note that BP operates in log space and any semiring must be log convertible If you define a non-log semiring, it will automatically convert, and convert it back to normal space at the end If you define a log semiring, it won't convert to log or convert from log. In other words, it outputs the answer in the space specified by the semiring

27. def getNeededElements(starterElements: List[Element[_]], depth: Int, parameterized: Boolean = false): (List[Element[_]], Boolean)

Get the elements that are needed by the query target variables and the evidence variables.

Get the elements that are needed by the query target variables and the evidence variables. Also compute the values of those variables to the given depth. Only get factors for elements that are actually used by the target variables. This is more efficient. Also, it avoids problems when values of unused elements have not been computed.

In addition to getting all the needed elements, it determines if any of the conditioned, constrained, or dependent universe parent elements has * in its range. If any of these elements has * in its range, the lower and upper bounds of factors will be different, so we need to compute both. If they don't, we don't need to compute bounds.
