Data mining is a relatively young and interdisciplinary field of computer science. It is a process that attempts to discover new patterns in large data sets. Different types of mining algorithms have been proposed by different researchers in recent years. A single algorithm may not be applied to all applications due to difficulty for suitable data types of the algorithm. Therefore the selection of a correct data mining algorithm depends on not only the goal of an application, but also on the
