A monothetic clustering method
: The proposed divisive clustering method performs simultaneously a hierarchy of a set of objects and a monothetic characterization of each cluster of the hierarchy. A division is performed according to the within-cluster inertia criterion which is minimized among the bipartitions induced by a set of binary questions. In order to improve the clustering, the algorithm revises at each step the division which has induced the cluster chosen for division. Key Words : Hierarchical clustering methods, Monothetic cluster, Inertia criterion
