This method returns the $n \times{} n$ matrix of direct causal effect indeterminates. This matrix has the parameter $l_{(i,j)}$ in the $(i,j)$ position if there is a directed edge $i \to j$, and 0 otherwise. Note that this matrix is not symmetric. The documentation of gaussianRing further describes the indeterminates $l_{(i,j)}$.
