A credal network is a graphical representation for a set of joint probability distributions. In this paper we discuss algorithms for exact and approximate inferences in credal networks. We propose a branch-and-bound framework for inference, and focus on inferences for polytree-shaped networks. We also propose a new algorithm, A/R+, for outer approximations in polytree-shaped credal networks. © 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
