On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 4 Introduction Clustering is a division of data into groups of similar objects, where each group is given a more-compact representation. Used to model very large data sets. Points are more similar to their own cluster than to points in other clusters.

5
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 5 Introduction Useful tool in data mining, where immense data sets which are difficult to store and to manipulate are involved. Study the parallel complexity of the hierarchical clustering problem. Builds a tree of clusters. Sibling clusters in this tree partition the points associated with their parent. Can explore data using various levels of granularity.

6
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 6 Introduction Two widely studied models –Bottom-Up Starts with single-point clusters and then recursively merges two or more of the most-appropriate clusters. –Top-Down Starts with one large cluster consisting of all the data points and then recursively splits the most-appropriate cluster. In both methods, the process continues until a desired stopping condition is met such as a required number of clusters or a diameter bound of the largest cluster.

7
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 7 Introduction A variety of sequential versions of hierarchical-clustering methods have been studied: –Cure Guha, et al.: Bottom-Up, good for clusters having arbitrary shapes or outliers –Chameleon Karypis et al.: Bottom-Up, relies heavily on graph partitioning –Principal Direction Divisive Partitioning Boley: Top-Down, good for document collections –Hierarchical Divisive Bisecting k-means Steinbach: Top-Down

8
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 8 Introduction Address the parallel complexity of hierarchical clustering. Describe known sequential algorithms for top-down and bottom-up hierarchical clustering. Parallelize top-down, when n points are to be clustered, provide an O(log n)-time, n 2 -processor CREW-PRAM algorithm that computes the same output as the corresponding sequential algorithm.

9
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 9 Introduction Define a natural decision problem based on bottom-up hierarchical clustering and add this Hierarchical Clustering Problem (HCP) to the list of CC-complete problems, adding a data mining problem for the first time. Show that HCP is one of the computationally most-difficult problems in the Comparator Circuit Value Problem (CCVP) class.

10
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 10 Introduction Demonstrate that the HCP is very unlikely to have an NC algorithm. In sharp contrast, give an NC algorithm for the top-down sequential approach. Parallel complexities of top-down and bottom-up are different, unless CC equals NC.

12
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 12 Preliminaries Interested in relating the complexity of hierarchical clustering to that of a problem involving Boolean circuits containing comparator gates. Comparator gates have two output wires, the first outputting the minimum and the second outputting the maximum of its two inputs. Each output has a maximum fanout of one.

13
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 13 Preliminaries Based on the comparator gate Basis for an entire complexity class Comparator Circuit Value Problem (CCVP) Given: An encoding of a Boolean circuit composed of comparator gates, inputs x 1,…,x n, and a designated output y. Problem: Is output y of TRUE on input x 1,…,x n ?

14
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 14 Preliminaries Let P denote the class of all languages decidable in polynomial time. Let NC denote the class of all languages decidable in poly-logarithmic time using a polynomial number of processors on a PRAM. Let RNC denote the randomized version of NC. Let NLOG denote the class non-deterministic logarithmic space. Let CC denote the class of problems that are NC many-one reducible to CCVP.

16
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 16 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Sequential Algorithms – Bottom-Up Input: set of points, distance function, bound B, and desired number of clusters, k Output: set of clusters Pair up all points starting with the two closest ones, then the next remaining two closest ones, and so on, until all are paired. Next, the sets of points X and Y minimizing d min (X,Y) over all remaining sets are merged, until only k sets remain.

17
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 17 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Sequential Algorithms – Bottom-Up (cont.) Assumed that the number of input points is even. There are no restrictions placed on the distance function. In the first phase of the algorithm points are clustered whose distance is less than or equal to B. Operates in polynomial time.

18
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 18 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Sequential Algorithms – Top-Down Function v(G) takes a graph as its argument and returns a set that consists of the vertices from G. Input: set of points, a distance function, and the desired number of clusters k Output: set of clusters All points start in the same cluster.

19
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 19 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Compute a minimum-cost spanning tree. Form clusters by repeatedly removing the highest-cost edge from what remains of a minimum-cost spanning tree of the graph corresponding to the initial set of points with respect to the distance function, until exactly k sets have been formed. Runs in polynomial time.

20
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 20 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Top-Down and Bottom-Up have different parallel complexities, unless CC equals NC. Prove that the exact same clusters as produced by the Sequential (Top-Down) Hierarchical Clustering Algorithm can be computed in NC. A natural decision problem based on the Sequential (Bottom-Up) Hierarchical Clustering Algorithm is CC-complete.

21
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 21 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Since a CC-complete problem is very unlikely to have an NC algorithm and a problem with an NC algorithm is very unlikely to be CC-complete, the parallel complexities of these two sequential algorithms are different. For a fast parallel algorithm for hierarchical clustering, the algorithm should be based on the Top-Down approach.

22
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 22 Algorithms for Hierarchical Clustering Theorem: Let n denote the number of points to be clustered. The Parallel (Top-Down) Hierarchical Clustering Algorithm can be implemented in O(log n) time using n 2 processors on the CREW PRAM. This algorithm is an NC algorithm, which means that the clusters can be computed very fast in parallel. Any reasonable decision problem based on this algorithm will be in NC.

Problem: Are x and y with d S (x, y) B in the same cluster C after the first-phase of the Sequential (Bottom-Up) Hierarchical Clustering Algorithm?

25
On the Parallel Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering and CC-Complete Problems Greenlaw and Kantabutra 25 Complexity of Hierarchical Clustering No restrictions placed on the properties the distance function must satisfy, the distances themselves must be natural numbers. This version of the problem easily reduces to the version where the weights come from R +. Not concerned with the distance between a point and itself, the k is the number of clusters to be formed. x and y are required to be no further apart than the distance bound B.

Define the distance function between each pair of points in S as follows: Let B = |E|, k = n, and take u and v as our points dS(x,y)dS(x,y)=ø({x,y})if {x,y} E =2|E|if x V and y V or vice versa =3|E|if x V, y V, and x y =4|E|if x n, y n, x y, and {x,y} E
