Abstract

The search for clusters in empirical data is an important and often encountered research problem. Numerous algorithms exist that are able to render groups of objects or individuals. Of course each algorithm has its strengths and weaknesses. In order to identify these crucial points artificial data was generated - based primarily on experience with structures of empirical data - and used as benchmark for evaluating the results of numerous cluster algorithms. This work is an addition to SFB Working Paper No. 7 where hard competitive learning (HCL), neural gas (NGAS), k-means and self organizing maps (SOMs) were compared. Since the artificial data scenarios and the evaluation criteria used remained the same, they are not explained in this work, where the results of five additional algorithms are evaluated.
