Recent Developments in Clustering and Data Analysis presents the results of clustering and multidimensional data analysis research conducted primarily in Japan and France. This book focuses on the significance of the data itself and on the informatics of the data. Organized into four sections encompassing 35 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the quantification of qualitative data as a method of analyzing statistically multidimensional data. This text then examines the rules of interpretation of correspondence cluster analysis by selecting classes and explaining variables involved in the algorithm of hierarchical classification. Other chapters consider the bootstrap and cross-validation methods, which are applied to the logistic ad nonparametric regression analyses of ordered categorical responses. The final chapter deals with a simpler treatment to classify the sleep state. This book is a valuable resource for researchers and workers in the fields from the behavioral sciences, biological sciences, medicine, and industrial sciences.
