Nonparametric clustering algorithms, including mode-seeking, valley-seeking, and unimodal set algorithms, are capable of identifying generally shaped clusters of points in metric spaces. Most mode and valley-seeking algorithms, however, are iterative and the clusters obtained are dependent on the starting classification and the assumed number of clusters… CONTINUE READING
