### Abstract

In this paper we present a ne_(l n [!ii ' with respect to Bayesian networks con- ogy for inducing Bayesian network structures frop3 titute the roblem of the evidence propagation and a database of cases. The methodology is based oap&lll searching for the best ordering of the system vari- the problem of the model search. The problem of shies by means of genetic algorithl{. Since his th_vidence propagation consists of once the vMproblem of finding an optimal ordea. teeuarue}rables are known, the assignment of resembles the traveling salesman p'FolUleh)ve use ....

Cooper [4] demonstrated that this problem Mated with the algorithm K2. We present empirical results that were obtained with a simulation of the ALARM network.
