In this paper, we consider the problem of clustering m objects in c clusters. The objects are represented by points in n-dimensional Euclidean space, and the objective is to classify these m points into c clusters such that the distance between points within a cluster and its center is minimized. The problem is a difficult optimization problem due to the fact that: it posseses many local minima. Several algorithms have been developed to solve this problem which include the k-means algorithm… CONTINUE READING
