Abstract

We propose an efficient algorithm for mining frequent approximate sequential patterns under the Hamming distance model. Our algorithm gains its efficiency by adopting a "break-down-and-build-up" methodology. The "breakdown" is based on the observation that all occurrences of a frequent pattern can be classified into groups, which we call strands. We developed efficient algorithms to quickly mine out all strands by iterative growth. In the "build-up" stage, these strands are grouped up to form the support sets from which all approximate patterns would be identified. A salient feature of our algorithm is its ability to grow the frequent patterns by iteratively assembling building blocks of significant sizes in a local search fashion. By avoiding incremental growth and global search, we achieve greater efficiency without losing the completeness of the mining result. Our experimental studies demonstrate that our algorithm is efficient in mining globally repeating approximate sequential patterns that would have been missed by existing methods.
