Data Clustering in C++: An Object-Oriented Approach (Chapman by Guojun Gan

By Guojun Gan

Data clustering is a hugely interdisciplinary box, the aim of that's to divide a collection of items into homogeneous teams such that items within the related team are comparable and gadgets in numerous teams are really specified. hundreds of thousands of theoretical papers and a few books on info clustering were released over the last 50 years. notwithstanding, few books exist to coach humans tips on how to enforce info clustering algorithms. This publication was once written for an individual who desires to enforce or increase their facts clustering algorithms.


Using object-oriented layout and programming recommendations, Data Clustering in C++ exploits the commonalities of all facts clustering algorithms to create a versatile set of reusable sessions that simplifies the implementation of any information clustering set of rules. Readers can keep on with the improvement of the bottom facts clustering sessions and several other well known facts clustering algorithms. extra issues corresponding to info pre-processing, info visualization, cluster visualization, and cluster interpretation are in brief covered.



This e-book is split into 3 parts--




  • Data Clustering and C++ Preliminaries: A evaluate of simple strategies of information clustering, the unified modeling language, object-oriented programming in C++, and layout patterns

  • A C++ information Clustering Framework: the advance of knowledge clustering base classes

  • Data Clustering Algorithms: The implementation of a number of well known information clustering algorithms



A key to studying a clustering set of rules is to enforce and scan the clustering set of rules. entire listings of sessions, examples, unit try out instances, and GNU configuration records are integrated within the appendices of this ebook in addition to within the CD-ROM of the ebook. the single specifications to bring together the code are a latest C++ compiler and the advance C++ libraries.
