Message-Passing Algorithm and its Generalizations

Message-passing algorithm is extremely useful for inference on Graphical Models. Recently there are some papers discuss about its generalizations which are very good to know and useful for further applications. There are so many good papers on this topic, and these are some of them

This link contributing for message-passing on Bayesian networks is from Microsoft Research, Cambridge. The website contains a various kinds of message-passing algorithms and applications. Also the website provides links to other websites related to message-passing and statistical inference on graphical models as well.

Expectation Propagation is refered as a generalization of belief propagation. This link is also from Dr. Minka of Microsoft Research.
There is a short paper by Prof. Murphy “From Belief Propagation to Expectation Propagation”

Prof. Yeir Weiss’s Homepage. Prof. Weiss has a lot of interesting work about inference on graphical models.
These are the must-read articles:
Bethe free energy, Kikuchi approximations and belief propagation algorithms
Constructing Free-Energy Approximations and Generalized Belief Propagation Algorithms
Understanding Belief Propagation and its Generalizations
