Estimation of CPDAG/PAG and causal inference using the IDA algorithm.


Standard and robust estimation of the equivalence class of a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) via the PC-Algorithm. The equivalence class is represented by its (unique) Completete Partially Directed Acyclic Graph (CPDAG). Furthermore, a PAG instead of a CPDAG can be estimated if latent variables and/or selection variables are assumed to be present. Functions for causal inference using the IDA algorithm (based on do-calculus of Judea Pearl) are provided for CPDAGs.
