wskm: Weighted k-means Clustering

Entropy weighted k-means (ewkm) is a weighted subspace clustering algorithm that is well suited to very high dimensional data. Weights are calculated as the importance of a variable with regard to cluster membership. The two-level variable weighting clustering algorithm TW-k-means (twkm) introduces two types of weights, the weights on individual variables and the weights on variable groups, and they are calculated during the clustering process. The feature group weighted k-means (fgkm) extends this concept by grouping features and weighting the group in addition to weighting individual features.
