Clustering is a widely studied data mining problem in text domain. In this paper, the authors provide an understanding about applying clustering to text documents. It thoroughly discusses about document pre-processing, applications of text clustering, key methods for text clustering, their relative advantages and limitations. Besides this, they will also discuss recent advances in this area.
