Unformatted text preview: lete Link Example   Use minimum similarity of pairs: sim(ci ,c j ) = min sim( x, y ) x∈ci , y∈c j   Makes *ghter, spherical clusters that are typically preferable.   Ager merging ci and cj, the similarity of the resul*ng cluster to another cluster, ck, is: sim(( ci ∪ c j ), ck ) = min( sim(ci , ck ), sim(c j , ck )) Ci Cj Introduc)on to Informa)on Retrieval Ck Sec. 17.2.1 Introduc)on to Informa)on Retrieval Sec. 17.3 Group Average Computa*onal Complexity   In the first itera*on, all HAC methods need to compute similarity of all pairs of N ini*al instances, which is O(N2).   In each of the subsequent N ­2 merging itera*ons, compute the distance between the most recently created cluster and all other exis*ng clusters.   In order to maintain an overall O(N2) performance, compu*ng similarity to each other cluster must be done in constant *me.   Similarity of two c...
