A New Rymon Tree Based Procedure for Mining Statistically Significant Frequent Itemsets
Keywords:frequent itemset mining, association analysis, Apriori algorithm, Rymon tree
AbstractIn this paper we suggest a new method for frequent itemsets mining, which is more efficient than well known Apriori algorithm. The method is based on special structure called Rymon tree. For its implementation, we suggest modified sort-merge-join algorithm. Finally, we explain how support measure, which is used in Apriori algorithm, gives statistically significant frequent itemsets.
