Research on the problem of clustering tends to be fragmented across the pattern recognition, database, data mining, and machine learning communities. Addressing this problem in a unified way, Data Clustering: Algorithms and Applications provides complete coverage of the entire area of clustering, from basic methods to more refined and complex data clustering approaches. It pays special attention to recent issues in graphs, social networks, and other domains.
The book focuses on three primary aspects of data clustering:
In this book, top researchers from around the world explore the characteristics of clustering problems in a variety of application areas. They also explain how to glean detailed insight from the clustering process—including how to verify the quality of the underlying clusters—through supervision, human intervention, or the automated generation of alternative clusters.
The first five chapters of this volume investigate advances in the use of instance-level, pairwise constraints for partitional and hierarchical clustering. The book then explores other types of constraints for clustering, including cluster size balancing, minimum cluster size,and cluster-level relational constraints.
It also describes variations of the traditional clustering under constraints problem as well as approximation algorithms with helpful performance guarantees.
The book ends by applying clustering with constraints to relational data, privacy-preserving data publishing, and video surveillance data. It discusses an interactive visual clustering approach, a distance metric learning approach, existential constraints, and automatically generated constraints.
With contributions from industrial researchers and leading academic experts who pioneered the field, this volume delivers thorough coverage of the capabilities and limitations of constrained clustering methods as well as introduces new types of constraints and clustering algorithms.

Adaptive Processing of Sequences and Data Structures: International Summer School on Neural Networks, "E.R. Caianiello", Vietri Sul Mare, Salerno, Italy, September 6-13, 1997, Tutorial Lectures
The book originates from a summer school held in September 1997 and thus is ideally suited for advanced courses on adaptive information processing and advanced learning techniques or for self-instruction. Research and design professionals active in the area of neural information processing will find it a valuable state-of-the-art survey.
This book is the first comprehensive treatment of rational matrix equations in stochastic systems, including various aspects of the field, previously unpublished results and explicit examples. Topics include modelling with stochastic differential equations, stochastic stability, reformulation of stochastic control problems, analysis of the rational matrix equation and numerical solutions. Primarily a survey in character, this monograph is intended for researchers, graduate students and engineers in control theory and applied linear algebra.
