INTRODUCTION Clustering statistical data has been studied from early time and lots of advanced models as well as algorithms have been C LUSTERING, or unsupervised classification, will be considered as a mixture of problem where the aim is to partition a set of data object into a predefined number of proposed. This section of the paper provides a view on the related research work in the field of clustering that may assist the researchers. clusters [13]. Number of clusters might be established by Bradley and Fayyad together in [2] put forth a technique for means of the cluster validity criterion or described by user. refining initial points for clustering algorithms, in particular k- Clustering problems are broadly used in many applications, means clustering algorithm. They presented a fast and efficient such as customer segmentation, classification, and trend algorithm for refining an initial starting point for a general analysis. For example, consider that customers purchased a class of clustering algorithms. The iterative techniques that are retail database records containing items. A clustering method more sensitive to initial starting conditions were used in most could group the customers in such a way that customers with of the clustering algorithms like K-means, and EM normally similar buying patterns are in the same cluster.

The refined initial point is used to evaluate the computer-based clustering removes the unimportant features performance of K-means algorithm in clustering the given and replaces the original set by a smaller representative set of data set. The results illustrated that the refinement run time is data objects. significantly lower than the time required to cluster the full K-means is a well known prototype-based [14], partitioning database.

The results of the experiments show that PSOKHM was simply superior to the III. METHODOLOGY other two clustering algorithms. 3.1. Initial Cluster Centers Deriving from Data Huang in [4] put forth a technique that enhances the Partitioning implementation of K-Means algorithm to various data sets. The algorithm follows a novel approach that performs data Generally, the efficiency of K-Means algorithm in clustering partitioning along the data axis with the highest variance. The the data sets is high. The restriction for implementing K- approach has been used successfully for color quantization [7]. Means algorithm to cluster real world data which contains The data partitioning tries to divide data space into small cells categorical value is because of the fact that it was mostly or clusters where intercluster distances are large as possible employed to numerical values. They presented two algorithms and intracluster distances are small as possible. which extend the k-means algorithm to categorical domains and domains with mixed numeric and categorical values. The k-modes algorithm uses a trouble-free matching dissimilarity measure to deal with categorical objects, replaces the means of clusters with modes, and uses a frequency-based method to modernize modes in the clustering process to decrease the clustering cost function. The k-prototypes algorithm, from the definition of a combined dissimilarity measure, further integrates the k-means and k-modes algorithms to allow for clustering objects described by mixed numeric and categorical attributes. The experiments were conducted on well known Fig. 1 Diagram of ten data points in 2D, sorted by its X value, with an soybean disease and credit approval data sets to demonstrate ordering number for each data point the clustering performance of the two algorithms. Kluger [5] first proposed spectral biclustering for For instance, consider Fig. 1. Suppose ten data points in 2D processing gene expression data. But Kluger’s focus is mainly data space are given. on unsupervised clustering, not on gene selection. The goal is to partition the ten data points in Fig. 1 into two There are some present works related to the finding disjoint cells where sum of the total clustering errors of the initialization centroids. two cells is minimal, see Fig. 2. Suppose a cutting plane 1. Compute mean (μj) and standard deviation (σ j) for every perpendicular to X-axis will be used to partition the data. Let jth attribute values.

For every data item t create the string of the class labels Pt = (P1, P2,…, Pl) where Pj is the class label of t when using the jth attribute values for step 4 clustering. 338 http://sites.google.com/site/ijcsis/ ISSN 1947-5500 (IJCSIS) International Journal of Computer Science and Information Security, Vol. 8, No. 9, December 2010 where ci is the ith data in a cell. As a result, the sum of total , (5) clustering errors of both cells are minimal (as shown in Fig. 2.) The same argument is also true for the second cell. The total clustering error of second cell can be minimized by reducing the total discrepancies between all data in second cell to m, which is computed by: , (6) where d(ci,cm) is the distance between m and each data in each cell. Therefore the problem to minimize the sum of total clustering errors of both cells can be transformed into the problem to minimize the sum of total clustering error of all data in the two cells to m. The relationship between the total clustering error and the Fig. 2 Diagram of partitioning a cell of ten data points into two clustering point may is illustrated in Fig. 4, where the smaller cells, a solid line represents the intercluster distance and dash lines represent the intracluster distance horizontal-axis represents the partitioning point that runs from 1 to n where n is the total number of data points and the vertical-axis represents the total clustering error. When m=0, the total clustering error of second cell equals to the total clustering error of all data points while the total clustering error of first cell is zero. On the other hand, when m=n, the total clustering error of the first cell equals to the total clustering error of all data points, while the total clustering error of the second cell is zero.

A solid line in the square represents the distance between the cell centroid and a data in cell, a dash line represents the distance between m and data in each cell and a solid dash line represents the distance between m and the data Fig. 4 Graphs depict the total clustering error, lines 1 and 2 represent centroid in each cell the total clustering error of the first cell and second cell, respectively, Line 3 represents a summation of the total clustering errors of the first and the second cells The partition could be done using a cutting plane that passes through m. Thus A parabola curve shown in Fig. 4 represents a summation of the total clustering error of the first cell and the second cell, , , , represented by the dash line 2. Note that the lowest point of the parabola curve is the optimal clustering point (m). At this , , , (3) point, the summation of total clustering error of the first cell and the second cell are minimum. (as shown in Fig. 3). Thus Since time complexity of locating the optimal point m is O(n2), the distances between adjacent data is used along the X- , , , .| | axis to find the approximated point of n but with time of O(n).

It is clearly observed from the results that, the proposed approach shows significant performance. In the lymphoma data set, the accuracy of the proposed approach is about 87%. The accuracy of the DPDA approach is very less (i.e.) 75%. Similarly for the liver cancer data set, the accuracy of the proposed approach is about 81% which is also higher than the existing approach. Moreover, time taken for classification of the proposed approach is more or less similar to the DPDA approach. The time taken for classification by the proposed approach in lymphoma and liver cancer data sets are 115 and 130 seconds respectively which is almost similar to the existing approach. Thus the proposed approach provides the best classification accuracy within a short time interval.
