Mining of Massive Data Sets

Mining of Massive Data Sets is a book evolved from material developed over several years by Anand Raja- raman and Jeff Ullman for a one-quarter course at Stanford. The course titled Web Mining, was designed as an advanced graduate course, although it has become accessible and interesting to advanced undergraduates.

At the highest level of description, this book is about data mining. However, it focuses on data mining of very large amounts of data, that is, data so large it does not fit in main memory.

The book takes an algorithmic point of view: data mining is about applying algorithms to data, rather than using data to train a machine-learning engine of some sort. The principal topics covered are: You can download the book Mining of Massive Data Sets from Standard.
