Every once in awhile we discover an interesting read that we think you might find interesting. Books on the Move brought this one to our attention in their review, “Classification and Data Mining (Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization).”

This volume contains both methodological papers showing new original methods, and papers on applications illustrating how new domain-specific knowledge can be made available from data by clever use of data analysis methods. The volume is subdivided in three parts: Classification and Data Analysis; Data Mining; and Applications. The selection of peer reviewed papers had been presented at a meeting of classification societies held in Florence, Italy, in the area of “Classification and Data Mining”.

Who knows, maybe someone on your Christmas list would enjoy this?
