Properties of the sample estimators used for statistical normalization of feature vectors


Normalization of feature vectors is often used as a step of data preprocessing for clustering. A unified statistical approach to feature vector normalization has been proposed recently by the authors. After the proposed normalization, the contributions of both numerical and categorical attributes to a specified objective function are statistically the same… (More)
