Exercise 10: Solving for problem

K={1, 1.1, 5, 5.1, 1.5, 5.2, 7.9, 1.2, 8.1, 9}
Total item=10

m1=5 m2=9
K1={1, 1.1, 5, 5.1, 1.5, 5.2, 1.2} K2={7.9, 8.1, 9}
m1=2.87==approx(3) m2=8.333==approx(9)

K1={1, 1.1, 5, 5.1, 1.5, 5.2, 1.2} ; K2={7.9, 8.1, 9}
m1=approx(3) m2=approx(9)
So, here same mean twice. so we have to stop.

Data Mining: Cluster analysis doing manually chapter 10

K-means clustering Algorithm for manually finding from observation:

Step 1: Take mean value

Step 2: Find nearest number of mean and put in cluster

Step 3: Repeat one and two until we get same mean


k=2 [it means we have to create 2 clusters]


m1=4   m2=12

k1={2,3,4}   [according to nearest distance of 4]

so mean m1=3








Iter 3:
K1={2,3,4,10,11,12} K2={20,25,30}
m1=7 m2=25

k1={2,3,4,10,11,12} k2={20,25,30}

m1=7, m2=25

Same mean twice. Thus we are getting same mean we have to stop.

We are going to create some data mining models for classification and compare their performance. The goal with our models is still.

Too few nodes => misclassification

Unit 5- Multiple Linear Regression


including more than one independent variable in the regression model, makes us extend the simple linerar regression model to a multiple linear regression model.

Relationship between response variables and several predictors simultaneously.

Model building , interpration difficulties due to complexity.

Multiple linear regression with two predictors:

where, Y is the dependent variable.
X1,X2…Xk are predictors(independent variables)
Epsylon is the random error
beta1, beta2, beta0 are unknown regression coefficients

Example=> oil consumption:

Y=oil consumption(per month)
X1=outdoor temperature

X2=size of house(in meter square)



now beta1 is expected change in Y(oil consiumption) at one unit increase in X1(outdoor temperature), when all other predictors are kept constant, i.e. in this case the size of the house is not changed.

beta1 is estimated with beta1=-27.2 degree C



The random error term epsylon is normally distributed and has mean zero. i.e. E(epsylon)=0

Epsylon has (unknown) variance sigma epsylon^2. i.e. all random errors have the same variance.

Adjusted R^2
R^2adj=1- SSE/(n-k-1)/SST/(n-1)



As for simple linear regression:

plots of residual against y prime
plots of residuals against xi
normal probability plot of residuals
plots of residuals in observation order
Cook’s distance
Studentized residuals
Standardized residuals

Can only occur for multiple regression.
Predictors explaining the same variation of the response variabl.

Oil consumption continued:
One predictor measuring house size in cm^2 and another predictor in m^2
Variance inflation factor


Condition Index for collinearity:
between 10 and 30=>weak collinearity
between 30 and 100=>moderate
collinearity>100=>strong collinearity

Example of Oil consumption continued:
Assume that we would like to use outdoor temperature X1 and house size X2 as predictors. Additionally, we want to use a third predictor:

X3={1 if extra-thick walls, 0 otherwise


Model Selection Strategies:
Mldel ranked using R^2, adjusted R^2 or mallow’s Cp
Stepwise selection methods:
Backward, forward, stepwise selection

r^2 Selection
In a data set with 7 possible predictors, there would be 2^7-1=127 possible regression models.
For every model size(k=1,2,…..,p) look at, let say, m models, chosen

Mallow’s Cp:
Large Cp=>biased model
it’s a formula.
where MSEp=mean squared error for a model with p parametes
mean squared error for the full model
n=number of observations

Exercise Sheet 4

Data Mining Methods: Unit 4
Correlation and Simple Linear Regression

Interpretation of the correlation coefficient
Possible range: [-1, 1]
-1: perfect negative linear relationship
0: no linear relationship,
1: perfect positive linear relationship.

Regression: Objective

To predict one variable from other variables.
To explain the variability of one variable using the other variables.

Predicts scores on one variable from the scores on a second variable.

Response variable: predicting variable (Y )
Predictor variable: predictions based on this variable (X)

Simple regression:
Only one predictor variable; otherwise multiple regression

Linear regression:

Predictions of the response variable (Y ) is a linear function of  the predictor variable (X)

Data Preprocessing/Exercise Sheet 2

Data Preprocessing in the Data Mining Process:

The data mining/KDD process
Why data preprocessing?

Issues in Data Preprocessing:

Data Cleaning
Data Transformation
Variable Construction
Data Reduction and Discretization
Data Integration

The data mining/KDD Process:
Understanding customer: 10%-20%
Understanding data:20-30
Prepare data: 40-70%
Build Models: 10-20%
Evaluate models: 10%-20%
Take action:10%20%

Why data mining?

Real – world data is dirty
Low data quality anyway a huge problem in data mining
Garbage in,garbage out
Different methods, different requirements

R Working Codes for data mining:

R code is case sensitive:
