  author={Zhang Yi and Ada Wai-Chee Fu and Chun Hing Cai and Pheng-Ann Heng},
Dynamical systems approach for clustering categorical data have been studied by some authors [1]. However, the proposed dynamic algorithm cannot guarantee convergence, so that the execution may get into an in nite loop even for very simple data. We de ne a new conguration updating algorithm for clustering categorical data sets. Let us consider a relational table with k elds, each of which can assume one of a number of possible values. We prepresent each possible value in each possible eld by an… CONTINUE READING
