On Parameterized and Kernelization Algorithms for the Hierarchical Clustering Problem Conference Paper uri icon


  • HIERARCHICAL CLUSTERING is an important problem with wide applications. In this paper, we approach the problem with a formulation based on weighted graphs and introduce new algorithmic techniques. Our new formulation and techniques lead to new kernelization algorithms and parameterized algorithms for the problem, which significantly improve previous algorithms for the problem.
