In this brief, we propose an extension to the hierarchical deterministic annealing (HDA) algorithm for clustering by incorporating additional features into the algorithm. To decide a split in a cluster, the interdependency among all the clusters is taken into account by using the entire data distribution. A general distortion measure derived from the higher order statistics (HOS) of the data is used to analyze the phase transitions. Experimental results clearly demonstrate the improvement in
more » ... performance of the HDA algorithm when the interdependency among the clusters and the HOS of the data points are also utilized for the purpose of clustering.
