Calinski-Harabasz index

Description

Calculate the Calinski-Harabasz index of clustering quality.

Usage

calcCalinskiHarabasz(data, belongmatrix, centers)

Arguments

data

The original dataframe used for the clustering (n*p)

belongmatrix

A membership matrix (n*k)

centers

The centres of the clusters

Details

The Calinski-Harabasz index \insertCiteda2020incrementalgeocmeans is the ratio between the clusters separation (between groups sum of squares) and the clusters cohesion (within groups sum of squares). A greater value indicates either more separated clusters or more cohesive clusters.
