get.expression {causaleffect}R Documentation

Get the expression of a probability object


This function converts an object of class probability returned by aux.effect, causal.effect, generalize, meta.transport, recover or transport with expr = FALSE into a string which represents the probability distribution. Currently only LaTeX syntax is available.


get.expression(x, primes = FALSE)



An object of class probability which is an internal list structure describing the interventional distribution.


A logical value. If TRUE, prime symbols are appended to summation variables to make them distinct from their other instantiations.


A character string that describes the resulting distribution in LaTeX syntax.

# Here the bidirected edge between X and Z is set to be unobserved in graph g
# This is denoted by giving them a description attribute with the value "U"
# The edges in question are the fourth and the fifth edge
