Clustering Algorithms: a Review
A review of clustering concepts and algorithms is provided emphasizing: (a) output cluster structure, (b) input data kind, and (c) criterion.
A dozen cluster structures is considered including those used in either supervised or unsupervised learning or both.
The techniques discussed cover such algorithms as nearest neighbor, K-Means (moving centers), agglomerative clustering, conceptual clustering, EM-algorithm, high-density clustering, and back-propagation.
Interpretation is considered as achieving clustering goals (partly, via presentation of the same data with both extensional and intensional forms of cluster structures).
