Hybrid association rules mining

There are two interesting applications of association rules mining: one is multilevel and multidimensional association rules mining, while the other is constraint-based mining.

Mining multilevel and multidimensional association rules

For a given transactional dataset, if there is a conceptual hierarchy that exists from some dimensions of the dataset, then we can apply multilevel association rules mining to this dataset. Any association rules mining algorithm applicable to the transaction dataset can be used for this task. The following table shows an example from the Amazon store:
