Abstract: The problem of optimal non-hierarchical clustering is addressed. A new algorithm combining differential evolution and k-means is proposed and tested on eight well-known realworld data sets. The classification of objects to be optimized is encoded by the cluster centres in differential evolution (DE) algorithm. A new efficient heuristic for this rearrangement was also proposed. The plain DE variants with and without the rearrangement were compared with corresponding hybrid k-means… CONTINUE READING
