Our search has the following Google-type functionality:
+ (addition symbol)
If you use '+' at the start of a word, that word will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry +Potter
Search results will contain 'Potter'.
- (minus symbol)
If you use '-' at the start of a word, that word will be absent in the search results.
eg. Harry -Potter
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between 2 words, then both those words will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry AND Potter
Search results will contain both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between 2 words, then either or both of those words will be present in the search results.
eg. 'Harry OR Potter'
Search results will contain just 'Harry', or just 'Potter', or both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, that word will be absent in the search results. (This is the same as using the minus symbol).
eg. 'Harry NOT Potter'
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
" " (double quotation marks)
If you use double quotation marks around words, those words will be present in that order.
eg. "Harry Potter"
Search results will contain 'Harry Potter', but not 'Potter Harry'.
If you use '*' in a word, it performs a wildcard search, as it signifies any number of characters. (Searches cannot start with a wildcard).
Search results will contain words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er', such as 'Potter'.

This book integrates the mathematics of data mining with its applications, offering the reader a reference to the mathematical tools required for data mining. Dedicated to the study of set-theoretical foundations of data mining, this book is focused on set theory and several closely related areas: partially ordered sets and lattice theory, metric spaces and combinatorics. The book is structured into 4 parts and presents a comprehensive discussion of the subject. Features and topics include: - Study of functions and relations, - Applications are provided throughout, - Presents graphs and hypergraphs, - Covers partially ordered sets, lattices and Boolean algebras, - Finite partially ordered sets, - Focuses on metric spaces, - Includes combinatorics, - Discusses the theory of the Vapnik-Chervonenkis dimension of collections of sets. Intended as a reference for the working data miner and researchers, a good knowledge of calculus is required to make the best use of this book, which will prove a useful reference.

From the reviews: The book is organized into four parts, with a total of 15 chapters. Each chapter ! offers numerous exercises and references for further reading. ! Overall, Simovici and Djeraba's presentation of both the theoretical grounds and the practical aspects of the various data mining methodologies is good. ! The book is intended for readers who have a data mining background ! . It will help this audience to improve their knowledge of how different data mining strategies operate from a mathematical standpoint. (Aris Gkoulalas-Divanis, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2009)
