abstract = {Discovering association rules is one of the most important task in data mining. Many efficient algorithms have been proposed in the literature. The most noticeable are Apriori, Mannila's algorithm, Partition, Sampling and DIC, that are all based on the Apriori mining method: pruning the subset lattice (itemset lattice). In this paper we propose an efficient algorithm, called Close, based on a new mining method: pruning the closed set lattice (closed itemset lattice). This lattice, which is a sub-order of the subset lattice, is closely related to Wille's concept lattice in formal concept analysis. Experiments comparing Close to an optimized version of Apriori showed that Close is very efficient for mining dense and/or correlated data such as census style data, and performs reasonably well for market basket style data. },

abstract = {We introduce the notion of iceberg concept lattices
and show their use in knowledge discovery in
databases. Iceberg lattices are a conceptual
clustering method, which is well suited for analyzing
very large databases. They also serve as a condensed
representation of frequent itemsets, as starting
point for computing bases of association rules, and
as a visualization method for association rules.
Iceberg concept lattices are based on the theory of
Formal Concept Analysis, a mathematical theory with
applications in data analysis, information retrieval,
and knowledge discovery. We present a new algorithm
called TITANIC for computing (iceberg) concept
lattices. It is based on data mining techniques with
a level-wise approach. In fact, TITANIC can be used
for a more general problem: Computing arbitrary
closure systems when the closure operator comes along
with a so-called weight function. The use of weight
functions for computing closure systems has not been
discussed in the literature up to now. Applications
providing such a weight function include association
rule mining, functional dependencies in databases,
conceptual clustering, and ontology engineering. The
algorithm is experimentally evaluated and compared
with Ganter's Next-Closure algorithm. The evaluation
shows an important gain in efficiency, especially for
weakly correlated data.},
