Size of random Galois lattices and number of closed frequent itemsets


Given a sample of binary random vectors with i.i.d. Bernoulli(pp) components, that is equal to 1 (resp. 0) with probability pp (resp. 1−p1−p), we first establish a formula for the mean of the size of the random Galois lattice built from this sample, and a more complex one for its variance. Then, noticing that closed αα-frequent itemsets are in bijection with closed αα-winning coalitions, we establish similar formulas for the mean and the variance of the number of closed αα-frequent itemsets. This can be interesting for the study of the complexity of some data mining problems such as association rule mining, sequential pattern mining and classification
