Mining association rules is an important problem in the field of data mining due to its wide applications. Weighted association rule mining has recently been proposed, in which transactions are attached with weighted values according to some criteria. The weights in these approaches may be thought of as an extension of traditional support in association-rule mining. Weighted association rules can be discovered in a variety of forms, like weighted association rules, fuzzy weighted association rules, and weighted utility association rules. The authors have used hits algorithm to automatically calculate transaction weights.
