Gaussian.Uniform()
Question

Hi,
Can anyone help me in understanding "Gaussian.Uniform()" ? Is this something related to uniform distribution also?
Thanks a lot in advance.

In Infer.NET terms, that's a Gaussian with a zero precision.

It's an improper distribution  i.e. you the probability density for any real value is 0.0. It is useful in the calculus of message passing which involves products and ratios of distribution functions. Multiplying a Gaussian message by a uniform Gaussian message does not change the original message.
