Data mining is a process that explores and analyses large data sets in order to discover meaningful patterns. Clustering is a main task of exploratory data analysis and data mining applications. Clustering is the task of grouping a set of objects in such a way that objects in the same group (called a cluster) are more similar to each other than to those in other groups (clusters). Clustering has wide applications in the field of medicine, business and marketing, World Wide Web (WWW), computer science, social science, educational data mining, climatology and many more.
