Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

`PAM.cluster`

calculates a clustering using the PAM algorithm (k-medoids). The quality of the clustering is judged using the
G1 index.

1 | ```
PAM.cluster(data, min = 2, max = 10, metric = "manhattan")
``` |

`data` |
A numeric matrix. |

`min` |
The minimal number of components that is tested. Must be at least 2. |

`max` |
The maximal number of components that is tested. |

`metric` |
If empty, data will be treated as a distance matrix. Otherwise, the value will be passed to the call of |

A list with 3 elements. The first element contains the optimal number of components according to the G1 index.
The second element contains a vector of the G1 values. The thrid element contains the clustering itself,
i.e. the return value of `PAM`

.
