SCCI: Stochastic Complexity-Based Conditional Independence Test for Discrete Data

An efficient implementation of SCCI using 'Rcpp'. SCCI is short for the Stochastic Complexity-based Conditional Independence criterium (Marx and Vreeken, 2019). SCCI is an asymptotically unbiased and L2 consistent estimator of (conditional) mutual information for discrete data.
