Theoretical Foundations of Clustering

Clustering is a widely used paradigm that suffers from the lack of mathematical foundations. I have been working extensively trying to address the theoretical challenges of developing such a theory, aiming also to provide some methodical tools to help clustering users choose the appropriate algorithm for their given task (in a series of papers mainly with Ackerman and Loker throughout the past 4 years).
