Sequential Pattern Mining / Assoziation Rules
Date: August 31, 2020 04:21AM
I guess this is a rather simple question but I am new to the topic.
On order to create assoziation rules from sequence databases do you always have to mine the sequential pattern first? And if so, is there some literature on this?

The answer is no.
There are some algorithm like Rulegen by Zaki (2001) who will first mine sequential patterns in a sequence database and then use them to create some sequential rules:
But some other algorithms like RuleGrowth and some others will directly find the rules:
These two types of rules are a little bit different though. You can check the RuleGrowth paper in the introduction for a brief comparison discussion of that.
