Cobweb (3.7)


Class implementing the Cobweb and Classit clustering algorithms. Note: the application of node operators (merging, splitting etc.) in terms of ordering and priority differs (and is somewhat ambiguous) between the original Cobweb and Classit papers

This algorithm always compares the best host, adding a new leaf, merging the two best hosts, and splitting the best host when considering where to place a new instance.
