Frequent pattern mining is based on the assumption that users can specify the minimum-support for mining their databases. It has been recognized that setting the minimum-support is a difficult task to users. This can hinder the widespread applications of these algorithms. In this paper we propose a computational strategy for identifying frequent itemsets, consisting of polynomial approximation and fuzzy estimation. More specifically, our algorithms (polynomial approximation and fuzzy estimation… CONTINUE READING
