Homework 11: Take Home Final: Due 11h00, 14 Dec 2015

This homework can be done in pairs. It is more elaborate than previous homeworks, and is intended to be somewhat open ended. A good submission will include figures like those in the text: examples of the cluster centers; examples of the histograms; examples of the signals; and a class confusion matrix. You can do this homework in relatively few lines of R (my version ran to about 30 lines), but it takes some thought to know which ones.

  1. Do problem 12.1 at the end of chapter 12 ("Clustering").
