Brief Notes on Association Rules Prof. Tom Fomby Department of Economics Southern Methodist University Dallas, Texas 75275 April, 2011 Unsupervised Learning Method. Neither prediction nor classification. Applications. E.g. Amazon.com sidebars; Grocery store shelving. ( | ) C = consequent items, A = antecedent items Transaction File: Binary Format versus Item List Format Confidence of a rule = ( ) ( | ) ( ) ( ) Lift = ( | ) ( ) : ; Lift = 1 when C and A are independent ( | ) = absolute measure ; Lift = relative measure The Apriori Algorithm (Agrawal and Srikant (1994)) In the first phase build up the item sets that meet the minimum support requirement. First, collect together all of the one-item sets that have minimum support. Then form two-item sets built from the previous minimum support one-item sets and then retain the two-item sets that have minimum support. Then form three-item sets built from the retained one-item and two- item sets and then choose those three-item sets that have minimum support.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
