Association hierarchy mining and its application for network traffic characterisation

Liu, Bin (2014) Association hierarchy mining and its application for network traffic characterisation. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis presents an association rule mining approach, association hierarchy mining (AHM). Different to the traditional two-step bottom-up rule mining, AHM adopts one-step top-down rule mining strategy to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of mining association rules from datasets. The thesis also presents a novel approach to evaluate the quality of knowledge discovered by AHM, which focuses on evaluating information difference between the discovered knowledge and the original datasets. Experiments performed on the real application, characterizing network traffic behaviour, have shown that AHM achieves encouraging performance.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
