Loopy belief propagation is well established for performing approximate inference in loopy graphs. Recently, residual belief propagration has been introduced. It has been shown that asynchronous message scheduling is beneficial to synchronous message passing. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the convergence behaviour of various message passing scheduling schemes. Furthermore, alternatives should be developed.
The candidate should be interested in machine learning, applied mathematics/statistics, Matlab programming, and algorithms. Interested candidates are encouraged to ask for further information. Additionally, the supervision of own projects in one of the above mention fields is possible.
