computeEM(
  x,
  K = 0,
  K.max = 20,
  kmeans.variance.min = 0.95,
  graph = F,
  Mclust.options = list()
)

Arguments

x

matrix of raw data (point by line).

K

number of clusters. If K=0 (default), this number is automatically computed thanks to the Elbow method.

K.max

maximal number of clusters (K.Max=20 by default).

kmeans.variance.min

elbow method cumulative explained variance > criteria to stop K-search.

graph

boolean: if TRUE, figures for total of within-class inertia and explained variance are plotted.

Mclust.options

list of default parameters values for the function Mclust.

Details

computeEM performs Expectation-Maximization clustering, dealing with the number of clusters K, automatically or not

Value

res.EM results obtained from Mclust algorithm.
