Create and learn Chain Event Graph (CEG) models using a Bayesian
framework. It provides us with a Hierarchical Agglomerative algorithm to
search the CEG model space.
The package also includes several facilities for visualisations of the
objects associated with a CEG. The CEG class can represent a range of
relational data types, and supports arbitrary vertex, edge and graph
attributes. A Chain Event Graph is a tree-based graphical model that
provides a powerful graphical interface through which domain experts can
easily translate a process into sequences of observed events using plain
language. CEGs have been a useful class of graphical model especially to
capture context-specific conditional independences. References: Collazo R,
