All clustering methods have to assume some cluster relationship among the data objects that they are applied on. Similarity between a pair of objects can be defined either explicitly or implicitly. In this paper, the authors introduce a novel multi-viewpoint based similarity measure and two related clustering methods. The major difference between a traditional dissimilarity/similarity measure and it is that the former uses only a single viewpoint, which is the origin, while the latter utilizes many different viewpoints, which are objects, assumed to not be in the same cluster with the two objects being measured.
