We construct probabilistic networks to support and solve problems of belief update and decision making under uncertainty. In problems of belief update, the posterior probability of a single hypothesis variable is sometimes of interest. When the evidence set consists of a large number of findings or even when it consists of only a small number of findings, questions concerning the impact of subsets of the evidence on the hypothesis or a competing hypothesis emerge.
