Recent developments, summarized in Spirtes et al. (1993, 2000) and Pearl (2000), have attempted to sharpen statements of background principles for studying causation in mathematical terms, using graph theory. Their aim was to demonstrate correspondences between graphs representing causal relations among variables and the joint probability distributions of these variables. They further sought to determine in graph theoretic terms conditions under which causal relations could be demonstrated.
