Resource description

A new ensemble method for cluster analysis is introduced, which can be interpreted in two different ways: As complexity-reducing preprocessing stage for hierarchical clustering and as combination procedure for several partitioning results. The basic idea is to locate and combine structurally stable cluster centers and/or prototypes. Random effects of the training set are reduced by repeatedly training on resampled sets (bootstrap samples). We discuss the algorithm both from a more theoretical and an applied point of view and demonstrate it on several data sets.
