Estimation of a Structural Vector Autoregression Model Using Non-Gaussianity
Analysis of causal effects between continuous-valued variables typically uses either autoregressive models or structural equation models with instantaneous effects. Estimation of ...

Gaussian Process Structural Equation Models with Latent Variables
In a variety of disciplines such as social sciences, psychology, medicine and economics, the recorded data are considered to be noisy measurements of latent variables connected by...

Estimation of causal effects using linear non-Gaussian causal models with hidden variables
The task of estimating causal effects from non-experimental data is notoriously difficult and unreliable. Nevertheless, precisely such estimates are commonly required in many fiel...

Estimation of linear, non-gaussian causal models in the presence of confounding latent variables
The estimation of linear causal models (also known as structural equation models) from data is a well-known problem which has received much attention in the past. Most previous wo...

Assessing Statistical Reliability of LiNGAM via Multiscale Bootstrap
Structural equation models have been widely used to study causal relationships between continuous variables. Recently, a non-Gaussian method called LiNGAM was proposed to discover ...

Use of Prior Knowledge in a Non-Gaussian Method for Learning Linear Structural Equation Models
Abstract. We discuss causal structure learning based on linear structural equation models. Conventional learning methods most often assume Gaussianity and create many indistinguish...

Discovering Cyclic Causal Models by Independent Components Analysis
We generalize Shimizu et al's (2006) ICA-based approach for discovering linear non-Gaussian acyclic (LiNGAM) Structural Equation Models (SEMs) from causally sufficient, conti...
