This phase is often fundamental to understanding what might be discovered during a data mining analysis. It often reveals problems with data quality, such as missing items and anomalous data. Since the observed reality is typically multidimensional, the next phase in exploratory analysis is multivariate in nature. Given the difficulty in visualising multidimensional phenomena, many analyses focus on bivariate exploratory analysis, and on how the relationships found in a bivariate analysis can modify themselves, conditioning the analysis on the other variables.

In order to choose which matrix to start from, in general, use R when the variables are expressed in different measurement scales. Note also that, using R, the interpretation of the importance of components is simpler. In fact, since the tr(R) = p, the degree of absolute importance of k components is given by: tr(VarY ) = tr(VarX) k i=1 λi p while the degree of relative importance of a principal component, with respect to a variable, is Corr(Yj , Xi ) = λi aj i . • How many principal components should we choose?

15) it is essential to adopt a probability model which describes the data generating mechanism. The introduction of such a framework allows more subtle information to be extracted from the data; on the other hand, it requires more assumptions to be made. Most of the methods belonging to this second group were developed by statisticians. However, they have also been adopted by computer scientists working in data mining, because of their greater accuracy. 1 deals with the important concepts of proximity and distance between statistical observations, which is the foundation for many of the methods discussed in the chapter.
