caviarpd: Cluster Analysis via Random Partition Distributions

Cluster analysis is performed using pairwise distance information and a random partition distribution. The method is implemented for two random partition distributions. It draws samples and then obtains and plots clustering estimates. An implementation of a selection algorithm is provided for the mass parameter of the partition distribution. Since pairwise distances are the principal input to this procedure, it is most comparable to the hierarchical and k-medoids clustering methods. The method is currently under peer review at a journal.
