Clustering Within Quantum Mechanical Framework

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3776)


We study clustering problem within quantum mechanical framework by utilizing the Schroedinger equation written for the lowest energy state. We extend the analysis of Horn and Gottlieb [1] by providing an explicit discussion of probability distribution within full quantum mechanical context and examine the clustering performances for various probability distribution functions with numerical experiments.
