Text clustering is a text mining technique used to group text documents into groups (or clusters) based on similarity of content. This organization (i.e. clustering) is so as to make documents more understandable and easier to search the relevant information, easier to process, and even more efficient in utilizing communication bandwidth and storage space. Clustering problems can be defined as: given a dataset of N records, each having dimensionality d, to partition the data into subsets such that a specific criterion is optimized. The most widely used criterion for optimization is the distortion criterion.
