  • collection: list of RandomVariable, optional> The collection of random variables to check with respect to; defaults to all random variables in the graph.

Returns:

list of RandomVariable. Child random variables of x.

Examples

a = Normal(0.0, 1.0)
b = Normal(a, 1.0)
c = Normal(a, 1.0)
d = Normal(c, 1.0)
assert set(ed.get_children(a)) == set([b, c])
