Discovering frequent geometric subgraphs
As data mining techniques are being increasingly applied to non-traditional domains, existing approaches for finding frequent itemsets cannot be used as they cannot model the requirement of these domains. An alternate way of modeling the objects in these data sets, is to use a graph to model the database objects. Within that model, the problem of finding frequent patterns becomes that of discovering subgraphs that occur frequently over the entire set of graphs. In this paper we present a computationally efficient algorithm for finding frequent geometric subgraphs in a large collection of geometric graphs. Our algorithm is able to discover geometric subgraphs that can be rotation, scaling and translation invariant, and it can accommodate inherent errors on the coordinates of the vertices. We evaluated the performance of the algorithm using a large database of over 20,000 real two dimensional chemical structures, and our experimental results show that our algorithms requires relative...
