The legend is wrong (or very misleading), while the code snippet displays the correct output. In the third example, given $E$, the highlighted node in grey, $A$ and $S$ are not d-separated. In this elementary configuration, $E$ is called a collider, and in a collider, conditioning on the common effect $E$ makes $A$ and $S$ dependent on each other. See for ...

That is just a function of the question being asked here. You want to know if you can say Travel is dependent on Education to a degree not explained by the Occupation and Residence factors. You're not asking what Education is dependent on, nor are you asking whether Age and Sex are or are not a factors in Travel. You either know or assume the conditional ...

The staging does explicitly state anything about the statistical relation of the variables, but rather tells us which conditional distributions we care about. For example, suppose some variable A is a first stage variable and B is a second stage variable. Then, the two probability distributions we care about are $P(A)$ and $P(B | A)$. This is because at the ...

The generator matrix is given by $$G = \begin{pmatrix} -(\lambda_1+\lambda_2)&\lambda_2&\lambda_1&0\\ \mu_2& -(\lambda_1+\mu_2)& 0 & \lambda_1\\ \mu_1& 0 & -(\lambda_2+\mu_1)& \lambda_2\\ 0 & \mu_1 & \mu_2 & -(\mu_1+\mu_2), \end{pmatrix}$$ and the transition matrix for the embedded Markov chain is given by  ...

When the $t$-tests are performed, they assume that the other variables are already in the model. For example, suppose you were building a model where the dependent variable was the weight of a book, and the independent variables were $x_2$ (the number of pages in the book) and $x_3$ (the thickness of the book). If you fit a model with both of these ...

P{A(B+C)}=P(AB+BC)=P(AB)+P(AC)-P(ABC) =P(A)P(B)+P(A)P(C)-P(A)P(BC) [A,B,C are mutually independent] =P(A)[P(B)+P(C)-P(BC)] =P(A)P(B+C) Hence A and B+C are independent.
