ABSTRACT
<p><it>Abstract</it>—Methods for approximately computing the marginal probability mass functions and means of a Markov random field (MRF) by approximating the lattice by a tree are described. Applied to the a posteriori MRF these methods solve Bayesian spatial pattern classification and image restoration problems. The methods are described, several theoretical results concerning fixed-point problems are proven, and four numerical examples are presented, including comparison with optimal estimators and the Iterated Conditional Mode estimator and including two agricultural optical remote sensing problems.</p>
