Additive two-mode clustering: The error-variance approach revisited
- 88 Downloads
The additive clustering approach is applied to the problem of two-mode clustering and compared with the recent error-variance approach of Eckes and Orlik (1993). Although the schemes of the computational algorithms look very similar in both of the approaches, the additive clustering has been shown to have several advantages. Specifically, two technical limitations of the error-variance approach (see Eckes and Orlik 1993, p. 71) have been overcome in the framework of the additive clustering.
