Text classication, the grouping of texts into several clusters, has been used as a means of improving both the eciency and the eectiveness of text retrieval/categorization. In this paper we propose a hierarchical clustering algorithm that constructs a set of clusters having the maximum Bayesian posterior probability, the probability that the given texts are classied into clusters. We call the algorithm Hierarchical Bayesian Clustering (HBC). The advantages of HBC are experimentally ver-ied from… CONTINUE READING
