SID-package: Structural Intervention Distance (SID) (package)

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


The package allows to compute the structural intervention distance (SID) between two graphs. This (pre-)metric evaluates graphs from a causal inference point of view. The package also contains a function for computing the Hamming distance and to generate random DAGs.
