mdDivisive: Matrix distance by distance and approach type. In LearnClust: Learning Hierarchical Clustering Algorithms

Description

To calculate the matrix distance by using `distance` and `approach` types.

Usage

 `1` ```mdDivisive(list, distance, approach, components) ```

Arguments

 `list` is a clusters list. `distance` is a string. The distance type to be used. `approach` is a string. The approach type to be used. `components` is a clusters list. It contains every clusters with only one element. It is used to check if complementary condition is 'TRUE'.

Details

This function is part of the divisive hierarchical clusterization method. The function calculates the matrix distance by using the distance and approach types given.

The `list` parameter will be a list with the clusters as rows and columns.

The function avoids distances equal 0 and undefined clusters.

It also avoids distances between clusters that are not complementary because they can't be chosen to divide all the clusters.

Matrix distance.
