I am trying to understand a paper and am stuck at one place.

The statement says something as follows:

Say we have a, b, c and d which are random variables generated by some model. This leads to the following joint probability model:

p(a, b, c, d) = p(a|b)p(b|c,d)p(c)p(d)

I do not understand the RHS of the equation at all? What is it saying and quite confused as to how it is derived?

Would be very grateful for any help you can give me.

Thanks,

Luca
