The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems
Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, July 2011. ISBN 978-0123814791


We are living in the data deluge age. The Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques shows us how to find useful knowledge in all that data. This Third Edition significantly expands the core chapters on data preprocessing, frequent pattern mining, classification, and clustering. The bookIt also comprehensively covers OLAP and outlier detection, and examines mining networks, complex data types, and important application areas. The book, with its companion website, would make a great textbook for analytics, data mining, and knowledge discovery courses.

-Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro, President, KDnuggets


Jiawei, Micheline, and Jian give an encyclopaedic coverage of all the related methods, from the classic topics of clustering and classification, to database methods (association rules, data cubes) to more recent and advanced topics (SVD/PCA , wavelets, support vector machines).. Overall, it is an excellent book on classic and modern data mining methods alike, and it is ideal not only for teaching, but as a reference book.
