This paper demonstrates a method for using belief-network algorithms to solve influencediagram problems. In particular, both exact and approximation belief-network algorithms may be applied to solve influence-diagram problems. More generally, knowing the relationship between belief-network and influence-diagram problems may be useful in the design and development of more efficient influence diagram algorithms.
