Computing Reviews Best of 2013
  • Each chapter contains key research content on the topic, case studies, extensive bibliographic notes and the future direction of research in this field
  • Covers applications for credit card fraud, network intrusion detection, law enforcement and more
  • Content is simplified so students and practitioners can also benefit from this book
With the increasing advances in hardware technology for data collection, and advances in software technology (databases) for data organization, computer scientists have increasingly participated in the latest advancements of the outlier analysis field. Computer scientists, specifically, approach this field based on their practical experiences in managing large amounts of data, and with far fewer assumptions– the data can be of any type, structured or unstructured, and may be extremely large. Outlier Analysis is a comprehensive exposition, as understood by data mining experts, statisticians and computer scientists. The book has been organized carefully, and emphasis was placed on simplifying the content, so that students and practitioners can also benefit. Chapters will typically cover one of three areas: methods and techniques  commonly used in outlier analysis, such as linear methods, proximity-based methods, subspace methods, and supervised methods; data  domains, such as, text, categorical, mixed-attribute, time-series, streaming, discrete sequence, spatial and network data; and key applications of these methods as applied to diverse domains such as  credit card fraud detection, intrusion detection, medical diagnosis, earth science, web log analytics, and social network analysis are covered.
