Methods for graphical models and causal inference.


This package contains several functions for causal structure learning and causal inference using graphical models. The main algorithms for causal structure learning are PC (for observational data without hidden variables), FCI and RFCI (for observational data with hidden variables), and GIES (for a mix of observational and interventional data without hidden variables). For causal inference the IDA algorithm and the generalized backdoor criterion is implemented.
