U-Statistic Hierarchical Clustering
D'Andrade, Roy G.
Psychometrika, 43, 1, 59-67, Mar 78
A monotone invariant method of hierarchical clustering based on the Mann-Whitney U-statistic is presented. The effectiveness of the complete-link, single-link, and U-statistic methods are evaluated. The U-statistic method is found to be consistently more effective in recovering the original tree structures than the alternative methods. (Author/JKS)
