a character string, which clustering method should be used?
a character string with two entries controlling the parameters used
in the underlying cluster algorithms. If set to NULL, then
default settings are taken: For hierarchical clustering this is
optional arguments to be passed. Note, for the k-means algorithm the number of centers has to be specified!
assetsSelect calls the functions
kmeans from R's
performs a hierarchical cluster analysis on the set of dissimilarities
kmeans performs a k-means
clustering on the data matrix itself.
Note, the hierarchical clustering method has in addition a plot method.
use="hclust" was selected then the function returns a
S3 object of class "hclust", otherwise if
selected then the function returns an object of class "kmeans".
