Data Analysis, Classification, Clustering, Statistical Models, Statistical Methods, Data Mining, Fuzzy Logic

The volume presents new developments in data analysis and classification, and gives a state of the art impression of these scientific fields at the turn of the Millennium. Areas that receive considerable attention in this book are Cluster Analysis, Data Mining, Multidimensional and Symbolic Data Analysis, Decision and Regression Trees. The volume contains a refereed selection of original research papers, overview papers, and innovative applications presented at the 7th Conference of the International Federation of Classification Societies (IFCS-2000), with contributions from eminent scientists all over the world. The reader finds introductory material into various areas and kaleidoscopic views of recent technical and methodological developments in widely different areas within data analysis and classification. The presence of a large number of application papers demonstrates the usefulness of the recently developed techniques.
