How to draw an FP-Tree with Latex and TIKZ?

In this blog post, I will show how to draw a beautiful FP-Tree data structure in a Latex document. The FP-Tree is a tree-like structure that was proposed in the FP-Growth algorithm for itemset mining, and is also used in … Continue reading

(video) Identifying Stable Periodic Frequent Patterns using SPP-Growth

Today, I present a video about finding stable periodic patterns in data, and discuss a new algorithm named SPP-Growth for this task. VIDEO LINK: https://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/spmf/videos/SPPGrowth.mp4 The  SPP-Growth algorithm and datasets for evaluating its performance are available in the SPMF software, which is open-source and programmed in Java. Source code and … Continue reading
