Subject: testing stability for clusters
I am looking for different ways to test the stability of clusters after they have been generated (eg using holdout cases or monte carlo simulations etc). I appreciate that the type of test will vary across clustering alogorithms but I would appreciate some generic reference material (preferably internet accessible) for different ways to assess cluster stability and listed criterion that could be applied to the assessment process.
