  • To use , you first need to load the Hierarchical Clustering Package using Needs["HierarchicalClustering`"].
  • defines the intercluster dissimilarity, given the dissimilarities between member elements.
  • Possible settings for the option include:
  • "Single"smallest intercluster dissimilarity
    "Average"average intercluster dissimilarity
    "Complete"largest intercluster dissimilarity
    "WeightedAverage"weighted average intercluster dissimilarity
    "Centroid"distance from cluster centroids
    "Median"distance from cluster medians
    "Ward"Ward's minimum variance dissimilarity
    fa pure function
  • The function f defines a distance from a cluster k to the new cluster formed by fusing clusters i and j.
  • The arguments supplied to f are , , , , , and , where d is the distance between clusters and n is the number of elements in a cluster.
