Loopy belief propagation for approximate inference: An empirical study. In:
 Proceedings of Uncertainty in AI,
, 1999
"... Abstract Recently, researchers have demonstrated that "loopy belief propagation" the use of Pearl's polytree algorithm in a Bayesian network with loops can perform well in the context of errorcorrecting codes. The most dramatic instance of this is the near Shannonlimit performanc ..."

nothing directly to do with coding or decoding will show that in some sense belief propagation "converges with high probability to a nearoptimum value" of the desired belief on a class of loopy DAGs Progress in the analysis of loopy belief propagation has been made for the case of networks
Probabilistic Analysis of MeanField Games
, 2013
"... The purpose of this paper is to provide a complete probabilistic analysis of a large class of stochastic differential games with mean field interactions. We implement the MeanField Game strategy developed analytically by Lasry and Lions in a purely probabilistic framework, relying on tailormade fo ..."

Bounds on the deviation of discretetime Markov chains from their meanfield model
"... We consider a generic meanfield scenario, in which a sequence of population models, described by discretetime Markov chains (DTMCs), converges to a deterministic limit in discrete time. Under the assumption that the limit has a globally attracting equilibrium, the steady states of the sequence of D ..."

Stochastic Modeling of LargeScale SolidState Storage Systems: Analysis, Design Tradeoffs and Optimization
"... Solid state drives (SSDs) have seen wide deployment in mobiles, desktops, and data centers due to their high I/O performance and low energy consumption. As SSDs write data outofplace, garbage collection (GC) is required to erase and reclaim space with invalid data. However, GC poses additional wri ..."

of any GC algorithm. We first present a stochastic Markov chain model that captures the I/O dynamics of largescale SSDs, and adapt the meanfield approach to derive the asymptotic steadystate performance. We further prove the model convergence and generalize the model for all types of workload
Mean field analysis for inhomogeneous bike sharing systems
 In 23rd Intern. Meeting on Probabilistic, Combinatorial, and Asymptotic Methods for the Analysis of Algorithms (AofA’12
, 2012
"... In the paper, bike sharing systems with stations having a finite capacity are studied as large stochastic networks. The inhomogeneity is modeled by clusters. We use a mean field limit to derive the limiting stationary distribution of the number of bikes at the stations. This approach is an alternati ..."

Selfdetermination and persistence in a reallife setting: Toward a motivational model of high school dropout.
 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,
, 1997
"... The purpose of this study was to propose and test a motivational model of high school dropout. The model posits that teachers, parents, and the school administration's behaviors toward students influence students' perceptions of competence and autonomy. The less autonomy supportive the so ..."

intentions to drop out of high school, which are later implemented, leading to actual dropout behavior. This model was tested with high school students (N = 4,537) by means of a prospective design. Results from analyses of variance and a structural equation modeling analysis (with L1SREL) were found
Noname manuscript No. (will be inserted by the editor) Meanfield Analysis of Hybrid Markov Population Models with Timeinhomogeneous Rates
"... the date of receipt and acceptance should be inserted later Abstract We consider a hybrid extension of Population Continuous Time Markov Chains (PCTMC) – a class of Markov processes capturing interactions between large groups of identically behaved agents. We augment the discrete state space of a P ..."

 Add to MetaCart
. We extend meanfield techniques for PCTMCs and show how to derive a system of integral equations that approximate the evolution of means and higherorder moments of populations and continuous variables in a hybrid PCTMC. We prove first and secondorder convergence results that justify
Analysis of LongRunning Replicated Systems
 IN PROC. OF THE 25TH IEEE ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER COMMUNICATIONS (INFOCOM
, 2006
"... We address the problem of using replication to reliably maintain state in a distributed system for time spans that far exceed the lifetimes of individual replicas. This scenario is relevant for any system comprised of a potentially large and selectable number of replicated components, each of which ..."
