The reader should remember that in SP all the messages are ’generalized’ messages.
Constraint Satisfaction by Survey Propagation
Sender,Receiver,Message),S) ≡ true It is always possible to send messages.
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
Message(Sender,Receiver,Message) This action accesses the msgbox package putting a tuple in the agent message box.
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
This integrity constraint says that an agent cannot both accept and refuse an offer (the o element in the tuple returned by the msgbox:getMessage(Sender) code call means that the message is an output message from Sender to Receiver; the last element of the tuple, T, is the time).
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
The receive action senses the value of the new message(Sender,Message) functional fluent.
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
Before the final stage of the protocol, it is the message qubits, and not Bob’s qubit, that have had the direct dynamical coupling to the system whose state is to be teleported (reflected in the fact that their descriptors depend on θ) — compare with the classical cyphertext, which is generated from the message.
Nonlocality and information flow: The approach of Deutsch and Hayden
A message M is to be transmitted to a decoder; M is uniformly distributed over the message set M.

That is, for every message in the real network, there is a message in the simulator.
Online Permutation Routing in Partitioned Optical Passive Star Networks
We have been conservative, no theoretical result is taken for granted and the randomized algorithm is just simulated message by message.
Online Permutation Routing in Partitioned Optical Passive Star Networks
Message passing techniques rely on conditional probabilistic messages passed from the immediate neighbourhood to find the most probable assignment of states to variables given the constraints.
Colouring random graphs and maximising local diversity
However the messages do not necessarily occur with equal probability, unlike messages in classical channel codes.
Sensing Capacity for Markov Random Fields
Zero temperature message passing and leaf removal The zero temperature limit of the cavity fields update (32) can be seen as a message passing (warning propagation) algorithm.
The number of matchings in random graphs
This message passing procedure starting from all the h = 0 is equivalent to the step (1) of the Karp and Sipser’s leaf removal procedure in the following sense: Run the message passing until you find a fixed point.
The number of matchings in random graphs
Let us start with a parallel update scheme, where, in every iteration step, all messages are recalculated simultaneously from the old messages.
