Mathematical optimization, Cluster analysis -- Algorithms, Smoothing (Statistics), Programming (Mathematics)
This paper is a continuation of our effort in using mathematical optimization involving DC programming in clustering and multifacility location. We study a penalty method based on distance functions and apply it particularly to a number of problems in clustering and multifacility location in which the centers to be found must lie in some given set constraints. We also provide different numerical examples to test our method.
