Estimating and Controlling the False Discovery Rate for the PC Algorithm Using Edge-Specific P-Values

14 Jul 2016Eric V. StroblPeter L. SpirtesShyam Visweswaran

The PC algorithm allows investigators to estimate a complete partially directed acyclic graph (CPDAG) from a finite dataset, but few groups have investigated strategies for estimating and controlling the false discovery rate (FDR) of the edges in the CPDAG. In this paper, we introduce PC with p-values (PC-p), a fast algorithm which robustly computes edge-specific p-values and then estimates and controls the FDR across the edges... (read more)
