Hello all,

 

Do any of you know of a good review paper/article that discusses cluster analysis/cluster validation as well as other clustering approaches like MDS?

 

Thanks

 

Henry

Hi,

 

I have human body scan data on 4 parts of the body: waist, upper hip, high hip and lower hip.  I am trying to find a way to classify human bodies into different “types” based on the 4 measures.  E.g. straight body, pear shape, etc.

 

Can you please tell me what kinds of techniques would be appropriate for this kind of analysis?  I am working with Mathematica.

 

Thanks!
