In the task of extracting association rules in datasets with numerical attributes, the usual approach is to previously discretize those attributes. In this paper, a deterministic method for the extraction of quantitative association rules is presented, which does not employ a previous discretization. It also tries to eliminate redundant rules and reduce the search. Experiments have been performed comparing it with the well-known deterministic algorithm Apriori, and statistical validation of the results was carried out using nonparametric tests. From the results obtained, the proposed approach can be seen as a suitable deterministic way of extracting quantitative association rules without a previous discretization.
