AbstractTesting conditional independence (CI) for continuous variables is a fundamental but challenging task in statistics. Many tests for this task are developed and used increasingly widely by data analysts. This article reviews the current status of the nonparametric part of these tests, which assumes no parametric form for the joint continuous density function. The different ways to approach the CI are summarized. Tests are also grouped according to their data assumptions and method types. A numerical comparison is also conducted for representative tests.
