An enhanced progressive fuzzy clustering approach to pattern recognition

Im, Paul Poh Teng (1997) An enhanced progressive fuzzy clustering approach to pattern recognition. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.


This thesis applies an enhanced progressive clustering approach, involving fuzzy clustering algorithms and fuzzy neural networks, to solve some practical problems of pattern recognition. A new fuzzy clustering framework, referred to as Cluster Prototype Centring by Membership (CPCM), has been developed. A Possibilistic Fuzzy c-Means algorithm(PFCM), which is also new, has been formulated to investigate properties of fuzzy clustering. PFCM extends the useability of the Fuzzy c-Means (FCM) algorithm by generalisation of the membership function.
