Abstract: In this paper we compute cluster centers of triangular fuzzy numbers through fuzzy c means clustering algorithm and kernel based fuzzy c means clustering algorithm. An innovative distance between the triangular fuzzy numbers is used and the distance is complete metric on triangular fuzzy numbers. The set of triangular fuzzy numbers and an another set with the same triangular fuzzy numbers by including an outlier or noisy point as an additional triangular fuzzy number are taken to find the cluster centers using MATLAB programming. An example is given to show the effectiveness between the algorithms.
Keywords: Fuzzy c means clustering algorithms, Fuzzy Clustering, Kernel function, Triangular fuzzy numbers.
