MODIFIED ALTERNATIVE DECISION RULE IN THE PRE-CLUSTERING ALGORITHM
In this paper the pre-clustering algorithm with the modified decision rule has been presented. The application of pre-clustering algorithm answers the question whether to carry out the clustering or would it result in the appearance of artificial structure (input data is one cluster and it is unnecessary to divide it). The versatility and simplicity of this algorithm allows using it in a various fields of science and technology. The pros and cons of pre-clustering algorithm have been also considered.
