Data Clustering: A Review

  title={Data Clustering: A Review},
  author={Anil K. Jain and M. Narasimha Murty and Patrick J. Flynn},
  journal={ACM Comput. Surv.},
Clustering is the unsupervised classification of patterns (observations, data items, or feature vectors) into groups (clusters). The clustering problem has been addressed in many contexts and by researchers in many disciplines; this reflects its broad appeal and usefulness as one of the steps in exploratory data analysis. However, clustering is a difficult problem combinatorially, and differences in assumptions and contexts in different communities has made the transfer of useful generic… CONTINUE READING
