We present an algorithm for causal structure discovery suited in the presence of continuous variables. We test a version based on partial correlation that is able to recover the structure of a recursive linear equations model and compare it to the well-known PC algorithm on large networks. PC is generally outperformed in run time and number of structural errors.
