Description

The holonomic gradient method (HGM, hgm) gives a way to evaluate normalizing constants of unnormalized probability distributions by utilizing holonomic systems of differential or difference equations. The holonomic gradient descent (HGD, hgd) gives a method to find maximal likelihood estimates by utilizing the HGM.

The HGM and HGD are proposed in the paper below. This method based on the fact that a broad class of normalizing constants of unnormalized probability distributions belongs to the class of holonomic functions, which are solutions of holonomic systems of linear partial differential equations.
