reduce  R Documentation 
From given rule base, select such set of rules that influence mostly the rule base coverage of the input data.
reduce( x, rules, ratio, tnorm = c("goedel", "goguen", "lukasiewicz"), tconorm = c("goedel", "goguen", "lukasiewicz"), numThreads = 1 )
x 
Data for the rules to be evaluated on. Could be either a numeric matrix or numeric vector. If matrix is given then the rules are evaluated on rows. Each value of the vector or column of the matrix represents a predicate  it's numeric value represents the truth values (values in the interval [0, 1]). 
rules 
Either an object of class "farules" or list of character
vectors where each vector is a rule with consequent being the first element
of the vector. Elements of the vectors (predicate names) must correspond to
the 
ratio 
A percentage of rule base coverage that must be preserved. It
must be a value within the [0, 1] interval. Value of 1 means that the
rule base coverage of the result must be the same as coverage of input

tnorm 
Which tnorm to use as a conjunction of antecedents. The
default is 
tconorm 
Which tnorm to use as a disjunction, i.e. to combine
multiple antecedents to get coverage of the rule base. The default is

numThreads 
How many threads to use for computation. Value higher than 1 causes that the algorithm runs in several parallel threads (using the OpenMP library). 
From a given rulebase, a rule with greatest coverage is selected. After that, additional rules are selected that increase the rule base coverage the most. Addition stops after the coverage exceeds original coverage * ratio.
Note that the size of the resulting rule base is not necessarily minimal because the algorithm does not search all possible combination of rules. It only finds a local minimum of rule base size.
Function returns an instance of class farules()
or a
list depending on the type of the rules
argument.
