# dwave_networkx.markov_network¶

markov_network(potentials)[source]

Creates a Markov Network from potentials.

A Markov Network is also knows as a Markov Random Field

Parameters: potentials (dict[tuple, dict]) – A dict where the keys are either nodes or edges and the values are a dictionary of potentials. The potential dict should map each possible assignment of the nodes/edges to their energy. MN – A markov network as a graph where each node/edge stores its potential dict as above. networkx.Graph

Examples

>>> potentials = {('a', 'b'): {(0, 0): -1,
...                            (0, 1): .5,
...                            (1, 0): .5,
...                            (1, 1): 2}}
>>> MN = dnx.markov_network(potentials)
>>> MN['a']['b']['potential'][(0, 0)]
-1
