A Graph Theoretic Criterion for Determining the Number of Clusters in a Data Set.
Krolak-Schwerdt, Sabine; Eckes, Thomas
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v27 n4 p541-65 1992
Procedures for determining the number of clusters in a data set are explored. A proposed stopping rule, the GRAPH criterion, is compared to four stopping rules currently in use. The GRAPH criterion's mathematically attractive properties and utility in solving the number-of-clusters problem are demonstrated. (SLD)
