TikZ library for drawing Bayesian networks, graphical models and (directed) factor
graphs in LaTeX.


Provides the following node styles:

* :code:`latent`

* :code:`obs`

* :code:`det`

* :code:`const`

* :code:`factor`

* :code:`plate`

* :code:`gate`

Provides the following commands (note that any of the arguments can be

* :code:`\factor [options] {name} {caption} {inputs} {outputs}`

* :code:`\plate [options] {name} {fitlist} {caption}`

* :code:`\gate [options] {name} {fitlist} {inputs}`

* :code:`\vgate {name} {fitlist-left} {caption-left} {fitlist-right}
  {caption-right} {inputs}`

* :code:`\hgate {name} {fitlist-top} {caption-top} {fitlist-bottom}
  {caption-bottom} {inputs}`

* :code:`\edge [options] {inputs} {outputs}`

* :code:`\factoredge [options] {inputs} {factors} {outputs}`

This library is derived from a technical report "Directed Factor Graph
Notation for Generative Models" and the accompanying TikZ macros by

GraphViz (http://www.graphviz.org/) is a more general open source
graph visualization software.  It uses DOT file format to describe the
structure of the graph.  The DOT file can be converted to LaTeX using
:code:`dot2tex` (http://www.fauskes.net/code/dot2tex/).

UAI (http://graphmod.ics.uci.edu/uai08/FileFormat) is a simple text
file format to describe Markov networks. The UAI file format can be
converted to DOT file format using :code:`uai2dot`
