7.2 Pattern Mining in Multilevel, Multidimensional Space

This section focuses on methods for mining in multilevel, multidimensional space. In particular, you will learn about mining multilevel associations (Section 7.2.1), multidimensional associations (Section 7.2.2), quantitative association rules (Section 7.2.3), and rare patterns and negative patterns (Section 7.2.4). Multilevel associations involve concepts at different abstraction levels. Multidimensional associations involve more than one dimension or predicate (e.g., rules that relate what a customer buys to his or her age). Quantitative association rules involve numeric attributes that have an implicit ordering among values (e.g., age). Rare patterns are patterns that suggest interesting ...
