# Probabilistic Circuits: A Unifying Framework for Tractable Probabilistic Models

YooJung Choi, Antonio Vergari, and Guy Van den Broeck.
(Unpublished manuscript), 2020

### TL;DR

We introduce the framework of probabilistic circuits (PCs) as a unifying tool that generalizes many tractable probabilistic models, while abstracting away from their syntactic differences. We then characterize tractability of query classes and transformations in terms of structural properties of PCs.

Note: This paper is an incomplete work in progress.
