class bayespy.inference.vmp.nodes.categorical_markov_chain.CategoricalMarkovChainDistribution(categories, states)[source]

Class for the VMP formulas of categorical Markov chain variables.

__init__(categories, states)[source]

Create VMP formula node for a categorical variable

categories is the total number of categories. states is the length of the chain.
