This is an implementation of the Dunn's index for clustering.

File Information
Description

The Dunn's index measures compactness (Maximum distance in between data points of clusters) and clusters separation (minimum distance between clusters). This measurement serves as a measure to find the right number of clusters in a data set, where the maximum value of the index represents the right partitioning given the index (partition with the highest separation between clusters and less spread data in between clusters).

For more information about the Dunn's index check:

hello this code is working fine on 100*50 dimensional images but not above that. I want to work on high resolution images too. Please help me soon. Thanks in advance

Julian,
Thanks for the very helpful function. The dunns.m function works fine but the spectralClust function in the demo file is not supported anymore in Matalb R2011b.

Hi all, It seems the server would not allow me to update the file so instead I have just upload it again, notice the new version only difference is that I'm including a demo that shows how to use the Index.

Hi can i know how have u represented the dissimilarity matrix, when i use mine i get error as index exceeds dimension

Hi,
I have also tried to run this code but unable to run it.
If it is possible for you to write a simple example so that we can understand it well.
Thanks in advance.
