Average Time Complexity of Decision Trees (Intelligent Systems Reference Library)


Decision tree is a widely used form of representing algorithms and knowledge. Compact data models  and fast algorithms require optimization of tree complexity. This book is a research monograph on  average time complexity of decision trees. It generalizes several known results and considers a number of new problems.    The book contains exact and approximate algorithms for decision tree optimization, and bounds on minimum average time  complexity of decision trees. Methods of combinatorics, probability theory and complexity theory are used in the proofs as  well as concepts from various branches of discrete mathematics and computer science. The considered applications include the study of average depth of decision trees for Boolean functions from closed classes, the comparison of results of the performance  of greedy heuristics for average depth minimization with optimal decision trees constructed by dynamic programming algorithm, and optimization of decision trees for the corner point recognition problem from computer vision.   The book can be interesting for researchers working on time complexity of algorithms and specialists  in test theory, rough set theory, logical analysis of data and machine learning.
