ABSTRACT
Apriori algorithm is the classic algorithm of association rules, which finds the entire
frequent item, sets. When this algorithm is applied to dense data the algorithm
performancedeclinesduetothelargenumberoflongpatternsemerge.Inordertofind
more valuable rules, this paper proposes an improved algorithm of association rules,
the classical Apriori algorithm. Finally, the improved algorithm is verified, the results
showthattheimprovedalgorithmisreasonableandeffective,canextractmorevaluable
