CTBN-RLE is a continuous time Bayesian network reasoning and learning engine. A continuous time Bayesian network (CTBN) provides a compact (factored) description of a continuous-time Markov process. This software provides libraries and executables for most of the algorithms developed for CTBNs. For learning, CTBN-RLE implements structure and parameter learning for both complete and partial data. For inference, it implements exact inference and Gibbs and importance sampling approximate inference for any type of evidence pattern. Additionally, the library supplies visualization methods for graphically displaying CTBNs or trajectories of evidence.
