(p.139) Chapter 5 Complexity and Axiomatization
Actual Causality

Joseph Y. Halpern

The MIT Press

Causal models are potentially quite large and difficult to describe, especially once they include information about normality and typicality. In this chapter it is shown that it is often possible to achieve a compact representation of causal models without losing any information. In addition, a complete axiomatization of a language for reasoning about causality is provided.

Keywords:   Compact representations, Complexity of determining causality, Axiomatizing causal reasoning
