Ving multivariate cases The authors consider analyzing statistical asymmetries between cause and effect to be highly instructive and they report on their decade of intensive research into this problemThe book is accessible to readers with a background in machine earning or statistics and can be used in graduate courses or as a reference for researchers The text includes code snippets that can be copied and pasted exercises and an appendix with a summary of the most important technical concepts. After reading The Book of Why I was ooking for a technical introduction to causality

Mathematization Of Causality Is A Relatively Recent of causality is a relatively recent and has become increasingly important in data science and machine earning This book offers a self contained and concise introduction to causal models and how to earn them from data After explaining the need for causal models and discussing some of the principles underlying causal inference the book teaches.

PROOFS ARE MOSTLY LEFT OUT MOREOVER AUTHORS CONCENTRATE MOSTLY are mostly eft out Moreover authors concentrate mostly theoretical issues ex identifiability and applications to real world problems are only occasionally.
Readers How To Use Readers how to use models how to compute intervention distributions how to infer causal models from observational and interventional data and how causal ideas could be exploited for classical machine earning problems All of these topics are discussed first in terms of two variables and then in the general multivariate case The bivariate case turns out to be a particularly hard problem for causal earning because there are no conditional independences as used by classical methods for sol.
