Independent Multiple-Sample Greedy Equivalence Search Implementation

Functions for the implementation of Independent Multiple-sample Greedy Equivalence Search (IMaGES), a causal inference algorithm for creating aggregate graphs and structural equation modeling data for one or more datasets. This package is useful for time series data with specific regions of interest. This implementation is inspired by the paper "Six problems for causal inference from fMRI" by Ramsey, Hanson, Hanson, Halchenko, Poldrack, and Glymour (2010) . The IMaGES algorithm uses a modified BIC score to compute goodness of fit of edge additions, subtractions, and turns across all datasets and returns a representative graph, along with structural equation modeling data for the global graph and individual datasets, means, and standard errors. Functions for plotting the resulting graph(s) are provided. This package is built upon the 'pcalg' package.
