optpart: Optimal partitioning of similarity relations
The package contains a set of algorithms for creating
partitions and coverings of objects largely based on operations
on (dis)similarity relations (or matrices). There are several
iterative re-assignment algorithms optimizing different
goodness-of-clustering criteria. In addition, there are
covering algorithms 'clique' which derives maximal cliques, and
'maxpact' which creates a covering of maximally compact sets.
Graphical analyses and conversion routines are also included.
