Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Beginning with some statistics on the remarkable growth of cluster analysis research and applications over many decades, we proceed to view cluster analysis in terms of its major methodological and algorithmic themes. We then review the early, influential domains of application. We conclude with a short list of surveys of the area, and an online resource with scanned copies of early pioneering books.
