## An Asymptotically Optimal Coordinate Descent Algorithm for Learning Bayesian Networks from Gaussian Models

\(\) This paper studies the problem of learning Bayesian networks from continuous observational data, generated according to a linear Gaussian structural equation model. We consider an \(\ell_0\)-penalized maximum likelihood estimator for this problem which is known to have favorable statistical properties but is computationally challenging to solve, especially for medium-sized Bayesian networks. We propose a … Read more
