Clustering Stable Instances of Euclidean k-means [article]

Abhratanu Dutta, Aravindan Vijayaraghavan, Alex Wang
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Stable instances have unique optimal k-means solutions that do not change even when each point is perturbed a little (in Euclidean distance).  ...  The Euclidean k-means problem is arguably the most widely-studied clustering problem in machine learning.  ...  Practically interesting instances of the k-means clustering problem often have a clear optimal clustering solution (usually the ground-truth clustering) that is stable: i.e., it remains optimal even under  ...

Clustering under Perturbation Stability in Near-Linear Time [article]

Pankaj K. Agarwal and Hsien-Chih Chang and Kamesh Munagala and Erin Taylor and Emo Welzl
2020 arXiv   pre-print
For k-center and k-means problems, our algorithms also achieve polynomial dependence on the number of clusters, k, when α≥ 2 + √(3) + ϵ for any constant ϵ > 0 in any fixed dimension.  ...  An instance is α-stable if the underlying optimal clustering continues to remain optimal even when all pairwise distances are arbitrarily perturbed by a factor of at most α.  ...  If the k-means, k-median, or k-center instance for X under the Euclidean distance is α-stable for α ≥ 2 + 3 then the optimal clustering can be computed inÕ(nk 2 + k 2d−1 · (k!) k ) time.  ...

Computational Feasibility of Clustering under Clusterability Assumptions [article]

Shai Ben-David
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The hope is that there will be clustering algorithms that are provably efficient on such 'clusterable' instances.  ...  It is well known that most of the common clustering objectives are NP-hard to optimize. In practice, however, clustering is being routinely carried out.  ...  An obvious, though of relatively minor significance question is: For which values of α does the problem of optimizing the k-means or k-median objectives for α-center stable instances become NP hard for  ...

Stability Yields a PTAS for k-Median and k-Means Clustering

Pranjal Awasthi, Avrim Blum, Or Sheffet
2010 2010 IEEE 51st Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science  
We consider k-median clustering in finite metric spaces and k-means clustering in Euclidean spaces, in the setting where k is part of the input (not a constant).  ...  From this perspective, our improvement is that for k-means in Euclidean spaces we reduce the distance of the clustering found to the target from O(δ) to δ when all target clusters are large, and for k-median  ...  Any (1+α)-weakly deletion-stable instance is α k-means instance is α 4 -distributed.  ...
