Each node within a DAG contains a CPT built upon Bayes Theorem, which states the probability of an event based upon prior knowledge of conditions that might be related to the event (14).
Given the DAG in Figure 1, regressing Y on [X.sub.1] alone yields the correct causal coefficient [c.sub.1] (Table 1), because there are no other open pathways connecting [X.sub.1] and Y.

Two papers focus on the first option, tackling two major challenges to experimental approaches: Fernando Martel Garcia and Leonard Wantchekon address the important issue of external validity, using the structural causal language of directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) to argue that external validity should be not so much a matter of whether an experiment has been replicated in multiple contexts, but rather whether it addresses generalizable theories.
The Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) has published a paper in the journal where authors Anthony Bonato, Dieter Mitsche, and Pawel Pralat say that the structure of terror networks can be compared to hierarchical organization in companies and certain online social networks where information flows in one direction from a source to the consumers and are known as hierarchical social networks or directed acyclic graphs (DAGs).
