The joint probability covering the demand and pricing decisions observed in our sample is given by the product [L.sub.D]Ls.
It benefits from the ability to inherently consider the joint probability of key variables through both high and low flow periods.
The product of the joint probability of the landing variables does not reflect the effects on the distribution of the single landing variable directly.
RBM is a probabilistic neural network that determines the probability generation of DBNs, this is establishing a joint probability distribution between the feature and the lables:
[BR.sub.3,n] (x, y) = [P.sub.r] {[N.sub.S] (t) = n, [S.sup.[omicron]] (t) = x, y < [R.sup.[omicron].sub.1] (t) [less than or equal to] y + dt, Y(t) = 7}, n [greater than or equal to] 1 denotes the joint probability that the interrupted customer stays in the service facility to complete the remaining service time.
The joint probability of all four steps occurring would be 25% x 25% x 25% x 25% = 0.39%.
and, in general, the joint probability distribution for any Bayesian Network, given nodes X = [X.sub.1], ..., [X.sub.n], is
[36, 37] calculated the joint probability distribution using the copula function combining multiple marginal distributions, the copula function has come to the forefront as an effective tool for multivariate frequency analysis, as it can take account of drought variables that are mutually related [38], and is now being widely utilized [39-44].
Such sources are described by a two-dimensional joint probability distribution (JPD) P([n.sub.s], [n.sub.i]), i.e., probabilities to get [n.sub.s] and [n.sub.i] photons in the signal and the idler arms correspondingly, also accessible through an experiment.
Since p([G.sub.1] | D)/p([G.sub.2] | D) = p([G.sub.1], D)/p([G.sub.2], D), we only need to compare the joint probability p([G.sub.1], D) and p([G.sub.2], D).
