High utility pattern mining is a popular and emerging research area in the field of data mining, which consists of discovering patterns of high importance in databases. The importance of patterns can be expressed in terms of various criteria such as the utility, weight or importance of patterns. One of the major applications of utility mining is the analysis of customer transaction databases to discover sets of items that generate a high profit when purchased together. This book provides an introduction to this field, reviews state-of-the-art techniques, and discusses recent advances.
