1
Agglomerative Hierarchical Clustering 1. Compute a distance matrix 2. Merge the two closest clusters 3. Update the distance matrix 4. Repeat Step 2 until only one cluster remains

2
Distance Between Clusters … Min distance Distance between two closest objects Min < threshold: Single-link Clustering Max distance Distance between two farthest objects Max < threshold: Complete-link Clustering Average distance Average of all pairs of objects from the two clusters

3
… Distance Between Clusters Mean distance Increased SSE (Ward’s Method)
