Advanced Patterns and Matches in Link Analysis


Wolverton, M. and Harrison, I. and Lowrance, J. and Rodriguez, A. and Thomere, J. Advanced Patterns and Matches in Link Analysis, in Intelligence and Security Informatics, Proceedings of ISI-2006, Springer-Verlag, 2006.


The Link Analysis Workbench (LAW) is a tool for detecting and monitoring situations of interest using inexact matching of graphical patterns. Here we describe some recent advances to LAW: incorporating hierarchy, cardinality, disjunction, and constraints in the pattern language and similarity metric, and a flexible, user-friendly interface for displaying matching data. These capabilities support analysts in rapidly exploring and understanding large, incomplete relational data sets.
