Despite being one of the most common approach in unsupervised data analysis, a very small literature exists on the formalization of clustering algorithms. This paper proposes a semiring-based methodology, named Feature-Cluster Algebra, which is applied to abstract the representation of a labeled tree structure representing a hierarchical categorical clustering algorithm, named CCTree. The elements of the feature-cluster algebra are called terms. We prove that a specific kind of a term, under… CONTINUE READING
