20th January 2003 - Spectral methods

Simon and Iain are responsible for this session on spectral methods for clustering.

Please read at least one of the following two short papers:

Reading just the beginning of the following paper would also be useful background:
Normalized Cuts and Image Segmentation. IEEE Conf. Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition(CVPR), June 1997. There is a much longer version of this paper from IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence 2000, but reading this is not expected!

If you have any difficulty obtaining the reading material, please contact Iain.
