Data Mining Outline for Exoplanet Data

This page outlines the plan for the application of the data-mining approaches to the astrophysical data, initially targeting the exoplanet data.

The aims of this page are to:

  • determine to what extent data-mining techniques can predict which stars host extra-solar planets, using the currently available data set
  • facilitate a thorough analysis of the available dataset using a wide-range of data-mining techniques
  • facilitate the interaction between the different groups, for example by providing example work flows for typical data-mining applications for this data set
  • define the responsibilities of the various team members
  • provide information relevant to the data-mining aspect to other team members
  • serve as a forum to share preliminary results
