Find Closed Itemsets

Description

Provides the generic function and the S4 method is.closed for finding closed itemsets. Closed itemsets are used as a concise representation of frequent itemsets. The closure of an itemset is its largest proper superset which has the same support (is contained in exactly the same transactions). An itemset is closed, if it is its own closure (Pasquier et al. 1999).

Closed frequent itemsets can also be mined directly using link{apriori} or link{eclat} with target "closed frequent itemsets".

Usage

is.closed(x)

Arguments

x

a set of itemsets.

Value

a logical vector with the same length as x indicating for each element in x if it is a closed itemset.
