We will be talking about… What is Clustering? Different Kinds of Clustering What is DBSCAN? Pseudocode Example of Clustering Definitions of parameters Complexity

What is Clustering? clustering is the assignment of a set of observations into subsets (called clusters) so that observations in the same cluster are similar in some sense.

Different types of Clustering Biology Information retrieval Climate Business Clustering for utility Summarization

Example

DIFFERENT KINDS OF CLUSTERS

Well Separated

Prototype based

Graph based

Density based

Share property (conceptual clusters)

DBSCAN-Introduction Density-Based Spatial Clustering of Applications with Noise Since society has started using databases, the amount of information that we are using is increasing exponentially. Due to that, automatic algorithms are entered to every subject.

Database Example

Density-Based Spatial Clustering of Applications with Noise 1. Minimum point in the density (MINEPS) 2. The distance of the point to check the density (EPS). There are four main steps in the algorithm, and the algorithm gets two parameters:

Definition 1 To find all adjacent points. The so called “adjacent” points are called so only of the distance between them is smaller than EPS from what we refer to as P- “point”. All the adjacent points are later entered into Neps (P).

Definition 2 Is to define the core group by checking if the point p is in the core with point q by checking if p includes in Neps (q) and the size of the group Neps (p) is grater then MINPTS.

Definition 3 Density-reachable the point p is density reachable from point q if there is a sequence of points that the first is p and the last is q, then every couple in the sequence is a directly density reachable

Definition 4 Density connected point refers to a single point that can reach two different points, also in different direction. For example in the diagram below we can see that P and Q are density- reachable from O. Therefore, P and Q are are density connected.

Definition 5 Cluster C, wrt.erps and MINPTS are non-empty subset of the database, together these two terms below are created: 1. If P is a member of class C and q is density reachable from P and NEPS(P)> MINTPS then q is also a member of C. 2. If p and q are both members of C, then both p and q are density connected to eachother.

Definition 6 There are groups of clusters, each point that does not belong to any group is called “noise”.

Pseudocode of the algorithm DBSCAN (Eps, MinPts) // SetOfPoints is UNCLASSIFIED ClusterId := nextId(NOISE); FOR i FROM 1 TO SetOfPoints.size DO Point := SetOfPoints.get(i); IF Point.ClId = UNCLASSIFIED THEN IF ExpandCluster(SetOfPoints, Point,ClusterId, Eps, MinPts) THEN ClusterId := nextId(ClusterId) END IF END FOR END; // DBSCAN

ExpandCluster(SetOfPoints, Point, ClId, Eps,MinPts) : Boolean; seeds:=SetOfPoints.regionQuery(Point,Eps); IF seeds.size Empty DO currentP := seeds.first(); result := SetOfPoints.regionQuery(currentP,Eps); IF result.size >= MinPts THEN FOR i FROM 1 TO result.size DO resultP := result.get(i); IF resultP.ClId IN {UNCLASSIFIED, NOISE} THEN IF resultP.ClId = UNCLASSIFIED THEN seeds.append(resultP);

END IF; SetOfPoints.changeClId(resultP,ClId); END IF; // UNCLASSIFIED or NOISE END FOR; END IF; // result.size >= MinPts seeds.delete(currentP); END WHILE; // seeds <> Empty RETURN True; END IF END; // ExpandCluster

Example

Define the value of parameter EPS bay MINPTS:

The complexity The complexity of ExpandCluster() is o(logN) in the worst case on a data base in size N and there is n iterations of this function, so it is on * log (n) )
