I was wondering if anyone had any information on fuzzy c-means
vs. other clustering techniques, especially k-means clustering?
I understand how fuzzy c-means works and have used it myself,
even in an article once, but I have been wondering if there has
been any analysis of how fuzzy c-means performs relative to other
methods, pitfalls, common choices for the fuzziness parameter,
etc.?
