# MOCluGen

## Summary

MOCluGen is a MATLAB/Octave implementation of the clugen algorithm for generating multidimensional clusters with arbitrary distributions. Each cluster is supported by a line segment, the position, orientation and length of which guide where the respective points are placed.

See the documentation and examples for more details.

## Install and use

Download the most recent version from the releases page or clone the development version with following command:

``````\$ git clone https://github.com/clugen/MOCluGen.git
``````

Open MATLAB or GNU Octave and `cd` into the project's folder, and run the `startup.m` script:

`>> startup`

MOCluGen can now be used, e.g:

```>> o = clugen(2, 4, 400, [1 0], pi / 8, [50, 10], 20, 1, 2, 'seed', 123);
>> scatter(o.points(:, 1), o.points(:, 2), 36, o.clusters, 'filled', 'MarkerEdgeColor', 'k');```

```>> o = clugen(3, 4, 1000, [1 0 0], pi / 8, [20 15 25], 16, 4, 3.5, 'seed', 123);
>> scatter3(o.points(:, 1), o.points(:, 2), o.points(:, 3), 36, o.clusters, 'filled', 'MarkerEdgeColor', 'k');```
