Latent variables have long confounded attempts to determine causal structure when experiments cannot be conducted. While some methods exist for dealing with exogenous latent variables, endogenous latents remain neglected. This thesis presents a new algorithm (the DM algorithm) designed to discover causal structure for a restricted class of models when endogenous latents are present. The algorithm is non-parametric, and in simulations outperformed one of the most popular methods for handling… Expand
