Causal Interpretation and Identification of Conditional Independence Structures

Seminar 5 on
ALGEBRAIC METHODS IN GRAPHICAL MARKOV MODELS
Monday, October 25 to Friday, November 12, 1999

Schedule

Organizing Committee:

Steen Andersson, Indiana University
Gérard Letac, Université Paul Sabatier
Michael Perlman, University of Washington
Hélène Massam, University of Virginia

Overview:

Graphical models are models determined by a complex system of multivariate dependencies. Algebraic methods have already been developed to draw inference from models with certain given independence structures. The aim of this seminar is to find algebraic tools that will allow us to work with more general graphical models. The Wishart distribution is the distribution that arises naturally in Gaussian graphical models and will also be the subject of some of our studies.
