Developer nodes

The following base classes are useful if writing new nodes:

node.Node(*parents[, dims, plates, name, ...])

Base class for all nodes.

stochastic.Stochastic(*args[, initialize, dims])

Base class for nodes that are stochastic.

expfamily.ExponentialFamily(*args, **kwargs)

A base class for nodes using natural parameterization phi.

deterministic.Deterministic(*args, **kwargs)

Base class for deterministic nodes.

The following nodes are examples of special nodes that remain hidden for the user although they are often implicitly used:

constant.Constant(moments, x, **kwargs)

Node for presenting constant values.

gaussian.GaussianToGaussianGamma(X, **kwargs)

Converter for Gaussian moments to Gaussian-gamma isotropic moments


gaussian.WrapToGaussianGamma(X, alpha[, ndim])

gaussian.WrapToGaussianWishart(X, Lambda[, ndim])

Wraps Gaussian and Wishart nodes into a Gaussian-Wishart node.
