shd {causalDisco} R Documentation

## Structural hamming distance between adjacency matrices

### Description

Computes the structural hamming distance between two adjacency matrices. This implementation is a modification of the shd function from the pcalg package, but here we avoid working on the heavy graphNEL objects for representing graphs that are used in the pcalg package.

### Usage

shd(est_amat, true_amat)


### Arguments

 est_amat Estimated adjacency matrix true_amat True adjacency matrix

### Details

Note that the function is symmetric in the two inputted adjacency matrices.

### Value

A numeric (a non-negative integer).
