Association rule mining is an important research topic in knowledge discovery and data mining. Recent promising research on association rule mining is however mainly to mine the fixed point and closed itemset in association rule mining. To mine all frequent closed itemsets is equal to build the fixed point lattice and mine its all points that satisfy support constraints. We further propose a new method for visualization of association rules based on the generalized association rule base.
