pchc: Bayesian Network Learning with the PCHC and Related Algorithms

Bayesian network learning using the PCHC algorithm. PCHC stands for PC Hill-Climbing, a new hybrid algorithm that uses PC to construct the skeleton of the BN and then applies the Hill-Climbing greedy search. More algorithms and variants have been added, such as MMHC, FEDHC, and the Tabu search variants, PCTABU, MMTABU and FEDTABU. The relevant papers are: a) Tsagris M. (2021). A new scalable Bayesian network learning algorithm with applications to economics. Computational Economics, 57(1): 341-367. <doi:10.1007/s10614-020-10065-7>. b) Tsagris M. (2022). The FEDHC Bayesian Network Learning Algorithm. Mathematics 2022, 10(15): 2604. <doi:10.3390/math10152604>.
