Example for explaing "support" in the 2017 Survey paper
Posted by: Jia-Kai Chou

I am currently reading the survey paper written by prof. Fournier-Vige et al. in 2017: "A Survey of Sequential Pattern Mining" (

While reading through section 2, the example in Table 1 provided for explaining the concept of "support", I feel like the support of itemset <{b},{f,g}> should be 3 instead of 2? I think such sequence appears in sequence 1, 3, and 4? Or maybe I am wrong? Can somebody help verify?

Thank you for your time in reading my question in advance.

Dear Jia-Kai,

You are right. I will fix this error in the PDF of the paper on the website.

Thanks for reporting it!

Best regards,
