Abstract
Quick view
Full text preview
In agglomerative hierarchical clustering, the traditional approaches of computing cluster distances are single, complete, average and centroid linkages. However, single-link and complete-link approaches cannot always reflect the true underlying relationship between clusters, because they only consider just a single pair between two clusters. This situation may promote the formation of spurious clusters. To overcome the problem, this paper proposes a novel approach, named k-Linkage, which calculates the distance by considering k observations from two clusters separately. This article also introduces two novel concepts: k-min linkage (the average of k closest pairs) and k-max linkage (the average of k farthest pairs). In the experimental studies, the improved hierarchical clustering algorithm based on k-Linkage was executed on five well-known benchmark datasets with varying k values to demonstrate its efficiency. The results show that the proposed k-Linkage method can often produce clusters with better accuracy, compared to the single, complete, average and centroid linkages.
