Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAHOUT-516) Eigencuts produces unexpected results
Date Thu, 12 May 2011 12:31:47 GMT


Martin Leginus commented on MAHOUT-516:

Hi guys,
I am trying to incorporate the Eigencuts clustering into my thesis and I found one problem
within the code (maybe I am wrong :)). It seems for me that in on the
line 134: "Matrix eigenVectors = new DenseMatrix(overshoot, eigenrank);" should be replaced
with Matrix eigenVectors = new DenseMatrix(overshoot, dimensions); as the algorithm trims
down the eigenvectors after DistributedLanczosSolver finishes eigenDecomposition. I believe
that this part of the code should be identical with the SpectralKmeansDriver and therefore
mentioned line should be replaced. I have used Mahout recently and I am just getting familiar
with it, therefore its possible that my observation is wrong. If so I am sorry for spamming

> Shannon reports he suspects a logic error in Eigencuts since it evidently does not produce
exactly the expected results. It passes all current unit tests so we need to characterize
the results differences and produce a test for it. Marking for 0.5 for now though we will
fix it as soon as possible.
