Clustering, Hierarchical, Density based, Partition based, Grid based


Clustering algorithms are taking attention  in recent times, according to a huge amount of datasets   and the growth of parallelized computing architectures. The goal of clustering algorithms is to divided the dataset into clusters, such that objects within the same cluster are similar to each other and differ from objects of other clusters. Clustering algorithms play an important role in information retrieval, indexing and text summarization. In this paper a brief overview of several clustering algorithms is discussed
