Description

This functions computes functional constraints known as Verma constraints for a joint distribution of a given semi-Markovian causal model.

Usage

Arguments

G

An igraph object describing the directed acyclic graph induced by the causal model that matches the internal syntax.

Value

A list of lists, each with five components corresponding to the functional constraint. The two equal c-factors that imply the functional independence are described by lhs.cfactor and rhs.cfactor and their expressions are given by lhs.expr and rhs.expr respectively. The independent variables are given by vars.
