Hypergraph Clustering

We consider the problem of clustering in domains where the affinity relations are not dyadic (pairwise), but rather triadic, tetradic or higher. The problem is an instance of the hypergraph partitioning problem. We propose a two-step algorithm for solving this problem. In the first step we use a nov...
