[To be submitted]
This paper presents the fundamental concepts underpinning MoLS, a framework for exploring and applying many variations of algorithms for one data mining problem: mining a database relation for Approximate Functional Dependencies (AFDs). An engineering approach to AFD mining suggests a framework which can be customized with plug-ins, yielding targetability and improved performance. This paper organizes familiar approaches for navigating a search spaces and introduces a new concepts to define and utilize variations of those spaces.
