Directed binary hierarchies and directed ultrametrics

(1) , (2)


Directed binary hierarchies have been introduced in order to give a graphical reduced representation of a family of association rules. This type of structure extends in a very specific way that underlying binary hierarchical classification. In this paper an accurate formalization of this new structure is studied. A binary directed hierarchy is defined as a set of ordered pairs of subsets of the initial individual set satisfying specific conditions. New notion of directed ultrametricity is studied. The main result consists of establishing a bijective correspondence between a directed ultrametric space and a directed binary hierarchy. Moreover, an algorithm is proposed in order to transform a directed ultrametric structure into a graphical representation associated with a directed binary hierarchy.
