SID: Structural Intervention Distance

The code computes the structural intervention distance (SID) between a true directed acyclic graph (DAG) and an estimated DAG. Definition and details about the implementation can be found in J. Peters and P. Bühlmann: "Structural intervention distance (SID) for evaluating causal graphs", Neural Computation 27, pages 771-799, 2015 <doi:10.1162/NECO_a_00708>.
