We introduce a class of image models which we call sparse dynamic trees (SDTs). These extend our previous work (1999) on dynamic trees by introducing a top-down generative prior for the tree structures, which leads to a sparse use of nodes in the network. We present results showing the properties of these networks in action on 1D patterns
