from objects different clusters.""



Following are the ways a clustering technique works:



- Exclusive:

A member belongs to only one cluster.



- Overlapping:

A member can belong to more than one cluster.



- Probabilistic:

A member can belong to every cluster with a certain
amount of probability.



- Hierarchical:

Members are divided into hierarchies, which are
sub-divided into clusters



at a lower level. "
