A Combination Approach to Cluster Validation Based on Statistical Quantiles

Abstract

In this paper, we analyse different techniques to detect the number of clusters in a dataset, also know as cluster validation techniques. We also propose a new algorithm based on the combination of several validation indexes to simultaneously validate several partitions of a dataset generated by different clustering techniques and object distances.
