Performance Comparison of Various Robust Data Clustering Algorithms
Robust clustering techniques are real life clustering techniques for noisy data. They work efficiently in the presence of noise. Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) is the first clustering algorithm, based upon fuzzy sets, proposed by 0but it does not give accurate results in the presence of noise. In this paper, FCM and various robust clustering algorithms namely: Possibilistic C-Means (PCM), Possibilistic Fuzzy C-Means (PFCM), Credibilistic Fuzzy C-Means (CFCM), Noise Clustering (NC) and Density Oriented Fuzzy C-Means (DOFCM) are studied and compared based upon robust characteristics of a clustering algorithm.
