Generalized score with marginal likelihood

Generalized score with marginal likelihood for single dimensional variables

Calculate the local score by negative marginal likelihood, based on a regression model in RKHS 1.

Usage

from causallearn.score.LocalScoreFunction import local_score_marginal_general
score = local_score_marginal_general(Data, Xi, PAi, parameters)

Parameters

Data: (sample, features).

Xi: current index.

PAi: parent indexes.

parameters: None.

Returns

score: Local score.

Generalized score with marginal likelihood for multi-dimensional variables

Calculate the local score by negative marginal likelihood, based on a regression model in RKHS for data with multi-dimensional variables 1.

Usage

from causallearn.score.LocalScoreFunction import local_score_marginal_multi
score = local_score_marginal_multi(Data, Xi, PAi, parameters)

Parameters

Data: (sample, features).

Xi: current index.

PAi: parent indexes.

parameters:
  • dlabel: indicate the data dimensions that belong to each variable. It is only used when the variables have multivariate dimensions.

Returns

score: Local score.
