I need to do a cluster analysis for the following variables:
Trickquestion answer: Good/Wrong count variable : range 0-9 time in minutes count variable Number of observations: 3300
Since I am new to cluster algorithms I'm struggling with choosing the best cluster algorithm. I have read about the following methods:
- k prototypes
- k means with Gower's distance
- PAM algorithm.
For the cluster analysis I need to use R.
Can someone give advice about which methods suits the data best. Since I'm studying mathematics I need to give a full mathematical explanation, so a blackbox algorithm is not an option. Tips were I can find Mathematical information about the algorithms are also welcome.
