18.1 Introduction

Data mining, which is a multidisciplinary analytical technique comprising statistics, computer science, mathematics, and database technology, has become popular in many applications. In general, data mining is deployed at application situations where some underlying insights are needed to be discovered from a huge amount of data. Such underlying patterns that are subtle and elusive could be revealed only by using some specially designed algorithms, which search and track down the patterns through a very large computational ...
