Rough Sets and Data Mining: Analysis of Imprecise Data is an edited collection of research chapters on the most recent developments in rough set theory and data mining. The chapters in this work cover a range of topics that focus on discovering dependencies among data, and reasoning about vague, uncertain and imprecise information. The authors of these chapters have been careful to include fundamental research with explanations as well as coverage of rough set tools that can be used for mining data bases.

The contributing authors consist of some of the leading scholars in the fields of rough sets, data mining, machine learning and other areas of artificial intelligence. Among the list of contributors are Z. Pawlak, J Grzymala-Busse, K. Slowinski, and others.

Rough Sets and Data Mining: Analysis of Imprecise Data will be a useful reference work for rough set researchers, data base designers and developers, and for researchers new to the areas of data mining and rough sets.

Editorial Reviews

A collection of 21 papers summarizing recent developments in fundamental research and practical tools for discovering dependencies among data, and reasoning about vague, uncertain, and imprecise information. They discuss such aspects as the generation of multiple knowledge from databases based on rough set theory, data mining using attribute-oriented generalization and information reduction, maintaining reducts in the variable precision rough set model, topological rough algebras, theories combining many equivalence and subset relations, and resolving queries through cooperation in multi- agent systems. Some of the papers have been expanded and updated from a 1995 computer science conference. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
