A Linear Algebra Measure of Cluster Quality.
Mather, Laura A.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v51 n7 p602-13 May 2000
Discussion of models for information retrieval focuses on an application of linear algebra to text clustering, namely, a metric for measuring cluster quality based on the theory that cluster quality is proportional to the number of terms that are disjoint across the clusters. Explains term-document matrices and clustering algorithms. (Author/LRW)
