Figure 2

Posterior distribution of node orders from the MCMC-Mallows approach, averaged over 100 simulations. Results from simulation setting with σ = 0.1: Observations only (top left), complete single knock-outs (top right), partial single knock-outs (bottom left), multiple knock-outs (bottom right). Node labels are included on the vertical axis, estimated positions within causal orderings along the horizontal axis, and the intensity of color of each square corresponds to the average proportion of iterations in which a given node was placed in a given position. As the causal node ordering is not unique for this DAG, true potential positions for each node are outlined in black.
