Frequent pattern mining has been a focused theme in data mining research for over a decade. Abundant literature has been dedicated to this research and tremendous progress has been made, ranging from efficient and scalable algorithms for frequent itemset mining in transaction databases to numerous research frontiers, such as sequential pattern mining,(More)
Graph-based semi-supervised learning has gained considerable interests in the past several years thanks to its effectiveness in combining labeled and unlabeled data through label propagation for better object modeling and classification. A critical issue in constructing a graph is the weight assignment where the weight of an edge specifies the similarity(More)
The goal of graph clustering is to partition vertices in a large graph into different clusters based on various criteria such as vertex con-nectivity or neighborhood similarity. Graph clustering techniques are very useful for detecting densely connected groups in a large graph. Many existing graph clustering methods mainly focus on the topological structure(More)
The application of frequent patterns in classification appeared in sporadic studies and achieved initial success in the classification of relational data, text documents and graphs. In this paper, we conduct a systematic exploration of frequent pattern-based classification, and provide solid reasons supporting this methodology. It was well known that(More)
With ever-increasing amounts of graph data from disparate sources, there has been a strong need for exploiting significant graph patterns with user-specified objective functions. Most objective functions are not antimonotonic, which could fail all of frequency-centric graph mining algorithms. In this paper, we give the first comprehensive study on general(More)
Frequent-pattern mining has been studied extensively on scalable methods for mining various kinds of patterns including itemsets, sequences, and graphs. However, the bottleneck of frequent-pattern mining is not at the efficiency but at the interpretability, due to the huge number of patterns generated by the mining process.In this paper, we examine how to(More)
Bug localization has attracted a lot of attention recently. Most existing methods focus on pinpointing a single statement or function call which is very likely to contain bugs. Although such methods could be very accurate, it is usually very hard for developers to understand the context of the bug, given each bug location in isolation. In this study, we(More)
Software is a ubiquitous component of our daily life. We often depend on the correct working of software systems. Due to the difficulty and complexity of software systems, bugs and anomalies are prevalent. Bugs have caused billions of dollars loss, in addition to privacy and security threats. In this work, we address software reliability issues by proposing(More)
