A Fast Parallel Clustering Algorithm for Large Spatial Databases
The clustering algorithm DBSCAN relies on a density-based notion of clusters and is designed to discover clusters of arbitrary shape as well as to distinguish noise. In this paper,...

Partitioning Nominal Attributes in Decision Trees
To find the optimal branching of a nominal attribute at a node in an L-ary decision tree, one is often forced to search over all possible L-ary partitions for the one that yields t...
