What energy functions can be minimized via graph cuts?
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE
, 2004
"... In the last few years, several new algorithms based on graph cuts have been developed to solve energy minimization problems in computer vision. Each of these techniques constructs a graph such that the minimum cut on the graph also minimizes the energy. Yet, because these graph constructions are co ..."

that can be written as a sum of terms containing three or fewer binary variables. We also provide a generalpurpose construction to minimize such an energy function. Finally, we give a necessary condition for any energy function of binary variables to be minimized by graph cuts. Researchers who
Constructing Free Energy Approximations and Generalized Belief Propagation Algorithms
 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
, 2005
"... Important inference problems in statistical physics, computer vision, errorcorrecting coding theory, and artificial intelligence can all be reformulated as the computation of marginal probabilities on factor graphs. The belief propagation (BP) algorithm is an efficient way to solve these problems t ..."

Energy conditions and their cosmological implications
, 2000
"... The energy conditions of general relativity permit one to deduce very powerful and general theorems about the behaviour of strong gravitational fields and cosmological geometries. However, the energy conditions these theorems are based on are beginning to look a lot less secure than they once seemed ..."

Quasilocal energy conditions
, 1994
"... The classical value of the Hamiltonian for a system with timelike boundary has been interpreted as a quasilocal energy. This quasilocal energy is not positive definite. However, we derive a ‘quasilocal dominant energy condition ’ which is the natural consequence of the local dominant energy conditio ..."

Versatile Low Power Media Access for Wireless Sensor Networks
, 2004
"... We propose BMAC, a carrier sense media access protocol for wireless sensor networks that provides a flexible interface to obtain ultra low power operation, effective collision avoidance, and high channel utilization. To achieve low power operation, BMAC employs an adaptive preamble sampling scheme ..."

By comparing BMAC to conventional 802.11inspired protocols, specifically SMAC, we develop an experimental characterization of BMAC over a wide range of network conditions
A View Of The Em Algorithm That Justifies Incremental, Sparse, And Other Variants
 Learning in Graphical Models
, 1998
"... . The EM algorithm performs maximum likelihood estimation for data in which some variables are unobserved. We present a function that resembles negative free energy and show that the M step maximizes this function with respect to the model parameters and the E step maximizes it with respect to the d ..."

Valuing American options by simulation: A simple leastsquares approach
 Review of Financial Studies

Twilight for the energy conditions?
, 2002
"... The tension, if not outright inconsistency, between quantum physics and general relativity is one of the great problems facing physics at the turn of the millennium. Most often, the problems arising in merging Einstein gravity and quantum physics are viewed as Planck scale issues (10 19 GeV, 10 −34 ..."

systems (inspired by quantum physics, but in no sense quantum themselves) exhibit seriously pathological behaviour. One manifestation of these pathologies is in the socalled “energy conditions” of general relativity. Patching things up in the gravity sector opens gaping holes elsewhere; and some “fixes
An approach to correlate tandem mass spectral data of peptides with amino acid sequences in a protein database
