Abstract

Clustering algorithms classify data points into meaningful groups based on their similarity to exploit useful information from data points. They can be divided into categories: Sequential algorithms, Hierarchical clustering algorithms, Clustering algorithms based on cost function optimization and others. In this paper, we discuss some hierarchical clustering algorithms and their attributes, and then compare them with each other.
