Strategies for Determining Causes of Events

Mark Hopkins, University of California, Los Angeles

In this paper, we study the problem of determining actual causes of events in specific scenarios, based on a definition of actual cause proposed by Halpern and Pearl. To this end, we explore two different search-based approaches, enrich them with admissible pruning techniques and compare them experimentally. We also consider the task of designing algorithms for restricted forms of the problem.
