Efficient Correlation Search from Graph Databases
Correlation mining has gained great success in many application domains for its ability to capture underlying dependencies between objects. However, research on correlation mining from graph databases is still lacking despite that graph data, especially in scientific domains, proliferate in recent years. We propose a new problem of correlation mining from graph databases, called Correlated Graph Search (CGS). CGS adopts Pearson's correlation coefficient as the correlation measure to take into account the occurrence distributions of graphs. However, the CGS problem poses significant challenges, since every subgraph of a graph in the database is a candidate but the number of subgraphs is exponential. We derive two necessary conditions that set bounds on the occurrence probability of a candidate in the database. With this result, we devise an efficient algorithm that mines the candidate set from a much smaller projected database and thus we are able to obtain a significantly smaller ...
