estimate_clustering: Intrinsic Dimension Estimation via Clustering

est.clusteringR Documentation

Intrinsic Dimension Estimation via Clustering

Description

Instead of directly using neighborhood information, est.clustering adopts hierarchical neighborhood information using hclust by recursively merging leafs over the range of radii.

Usage

est.clustering(X, kmin = round(sqrt(nrow(X))))

Arguments

X

an (n\times p) matrix or data frame whose rows are observations.

kmin

minimal number of neighborhood size to search over.

Value

a named list containing containing

estdim

estimated intrinsic dimension.

Examples


## create 'swiss' roll dataset
X = aux.gensamples(dname="swiss")

## try different k values
out1 = est.clustering(X, kmin=5)
out2 = est.clustering(X, kmin=25)
out3 = est.clustering(X, kmin=50)

## print the results
line1 = paste0("* est.clustering : kmin=5  gives ",round(out1$estdim,2))
line2 = paste0("* est.clustering : kmin=25 gives ",round(out2$estdim,2))
line3 = paste0("* est.clustering : kmin=50 gives ",round(out3$estdim,2))
cat(paste0(line1,"\n",line2,"\n",line3))
