An entropy based model-free definition of causal coupling strength for multivariate time series — •Jakob Runge1,2, Jobst Heitzig1, and Jürgen Kurths11Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, P.O.

We discuss the problem of defining a causal coupling strength between components of a multivariate time series if no underlying model is assumed. This is in contrast to methods like cross-correlation or granger causality. The method is based on conditional mutual information and utilizes the concept of graphical models. We investigate how our measure relates to model systems where a coupling strength is known and discuss its limitations.
