TITLEInteger Data Analytics and Its Application

ABSTRACT Abstract: Integer data sets frequently appear in many applications in sciences and tech- nology. Since integers are discrete in nature, none of previously proposed techniques developed for real numbers can be successfully applied. To tackle this difficulty, we propose a block coordinate descent method based on the integer least squares estimation. We then demonstrate our numerical experiments on the application of market basket analysis and compare our results with those obtained by other existing alternatives.
