stupidkaven: Stupid average dissimilarity random clustering

Description

Picks k random starting points from given dataset to initialise k clusters. Then, one by one, the point not yet assigned to any cluster with smallest average dissimilarity to the points of any already existing cluster is assigned to that cluster, until all points are assigned. This is a random versione of average linkage clustering, see Akhanli and Hennig (2020).

Usage

stupidkaven(d,k)

Arguments

d

dist-object or dissimilarity matrix.

k

integer. Number of clusters.

Value

The clustering vector (values 1 to k, length number of objects behind d),
