  • Dissimilar records should belong to different clusters
  • In Clustering there are two types of Clusters they are:
    • Hierarchical Clustering
    • Non-Hierarchical Clustering

Hierarchical Clustering Alogorithm:

  • Hierarchical methods-agglomeratives: Begin with n clusters; sequentially merge similar clusters until 1 cluster is left. Useful when goal is to arrange the clusters into a natural hierarchy. Requires specifying distance measure
