Reliability and Quality of Service in Weighted Probabilistic Networks using Algebraic Decision Diagrams

by Bobbio, Andrea; Terruggia, Roberta

We discuss two types of interpretation of weights: weights as distances and weights as capacities. Correspondingly, two different algorithms based on a data structure called Algebraic Decision Diagram (ADD), are discussed and presented...
