[P] Visualizing Tensor Operations with Factor Graphs

Hey everyone,

I’ve written a new blog post (https://rajatvd.github.io/Factor-Graphs/) on an awesome visualization tool that I recently came across — factor graphs. Initially, I encountered them in the context of message passing on graphical models, but soon realized that they are useful in more general contexts.

This is the first post in a series that covers the basics and mainly focuses on understanding how factor graphs work as a visualization tool, along with a cool example of a visual proof using them. In future posts, I plan to cover algorithms like message passing and belief propagation using this visualization framework.

I made the animations using manim, a math animation tool created by the amazing 3blue1brown. I built a small library, manimnx, on top of manim to help interface it with the graph package networkx. You can find the code for the animations in this github repo.

Feedback is welcome!
