Mining Associations with Eclat

Mine frequent itemsets with the Eclat algorithm. This algorithm uses simple intersection operations for equivalence class clustering along with bottom-up lattice traversal.

Keywords
models
Usage
eclat(data, parameter = NULL, control = NULL)
Arguments
data

object of class '>transactions or any data structure which can be coerced into '>transactions (e.g., binary matrix, data.frame).

parameter

object of class '>ECparameter or named list (default values are: support 0.1 and maxlen 5)

control

object of class '>ECcontrol or named list for algorithmic controls.

Details

Calls the C implementation of the Eclat algorithm by Christian Borgelt for mining frequent itemsets.

Note for control parameter tidLists=TRUE: Since storing transaction ID lists is very memory intensive, creating transaction ID lists only works for minimum support values which create a relatively small number of itemsets. See also supportingTransactions.

ruleInduction can be used to generate rules from the found itemsets.

A weighted version of ECLAT is available as function weclat. This version can be used to perform weighted association rule mining (WARM).

Value

Returns an object of class '>itemsets.
