DESCRIPTION



There is often a large number of association rules discovered

in data mining practice, making it difficult for users to

identify those that are of particular interest to them.

Therefore, it is important to remove insignificant rules and

prune redundancy as well as summarize, visualize, and

post-mine the discovered rules.





Post-Mining of Association Rules: Techniques for Effective

Knowledge Extraction provides a systematic collection on

post-mining, summarization and presentation of association

rules, and new forms of association rules. This book presents

researchers, practitioners, and academicians with tools to

extract useful and actionable knowledge after discovering

a large number of association rules.







********************

"This book examines the post-analysis and post-mining of

association rules to find useful knowledge from a large

number of discovered rules and presents a systematic view

of the above topic."



- Yanchang Zhao, University of Technology Sydney, Australia
