Two methods for encoding clusters

document type



This paper presents two methods for generating numerical codes representing clusters of R-n, while preserving various topological properties of data spaces. This is useful for networks whose input, or eventually output, consists of unordered sets of points. The first method is the best one from a theoretical point of view, while the second one is more usable for large clusters in practice. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
