Subject kmeans not returning k clusters
Date Sun, 06 May 2012 20:49:52 GMT
What would cause kmeans to not return k clusters? As I tweak parameters 
I get different numbers of clusters but it's usually less than the k I 
pass in. Since I am not using canopies at present I would expect k to 
always be honored but the quality of the clusters would depend on the 
convergence amount and number of iterations allowed. No?
