Description

Perform spherical k-means clustering on a data matrix. Similar to the k-means algorithm differing only in that data features are min-max normalized the dissimilarity metric is Cosine distance.

Skmeans(data, centers, nrow = -1, ncol = -1,
  iter.max = .Machine$integer.max, nthread = -1, init = c("kmeanspp",
  "random", "forgy", "none"), tolerance = 1e-06)

Arguments

data

Data file name on disk (NUMA optmized) or In-memory data matrix

centers

Either (i) The number of centers (i.e., k), or (ii) an In-memory data matrix

nrow

The number of samples in the dataset

ncol

The number of features in the dataset

iter.max

The maximum number of iteration of k-means to perform

nthread

The number of parallel threads to run

init

The type of initialization to use c("kmeanspp", "random", "forgy", "none")

tolerance

The convergence tolerance

Value

A list containing the attributes of the output. cluster: A vector of integers (from 1:k) indicating the cluster to which each point is allocated. centers: A matrix of cluster centres. size: The number of points in each cluster. iter: The number of (outer) iterations.
