Itemwise Set Operations

Description

Itemwise operations regard each item as an element and operate on the items of pairs if corresponding itemsets (first itemset in x with first itemset in y, second with second, etc.).

Usage

itemUnion(x, y)
itemSetdiff(x, y)
itemIntersect(x, y)

Arguments

x,y

two itemMatrix objects with the same number of rows (itemsets).

Value
