Clustering Large Applications (CLARA) Object
The objects of class
"clara" represent a partitioning of a large
dataset into clusters and are typically returned from
clara object is a list with the following components:
labels or case numbers of the observations in the best sample, that is,
the sample used by the
clara algorithm for the final partition.
the medoids or representative objects of the clusters.
It is a matrix with in each row the coordinates of one medoid.

the objective function for the final clustering of the entire dataset.
matrix, each row gives numerical information for one cluster. These are the cardinality of the cluster (number of observations), the maximal and average dissimilarity between the observations in the cluster and the cluster's medoid. The last column is the maximal dissimilarity between the observations in the cluster and the cluster's medoid, divided by the minimal dissimilarity between the cluster's medoid and the medoid of any other cluster. If this ratio is small, the cluster is well-separated from the other clusters.
