  title={Discovering Causal Relations by Experimentation : Causal Trees},
  author={Gr{\'e}gory and D. and Weber},
The Controlled Lesion Method (CLM) is a set of principles for inferring the causal structure of deterministic mechanisms by experimentation. CLM formulates an important part of the common-sense logic of causation and experimentation. Previous work showed that CLM could be used to discover the structure of deterministic chains of binary variables more accurately than statistical methods; however, as implemented, CLM was prone to error when applied to causal trees.
