An extension of transfer entropy, called partial transfer entropy (PTE), is proposed to detect causal effects among observed interacting systems, and particularly to distinguish direct from indirect causal effects. PTE is compared to a linear direct causality measure, the Partial Directed Coherence (PDC), on known linear stochastic systems and nonlinear deterministic systems. PTE performs equally well as PDC on the linear systems and better than PDC on the nonlinear systems, both being… CONTINUE READING
