	  abstract     = {Most of fuzzy clustering algorithms have some
discrepancies, e.g. they are not able to detect clusters with convex
shapes, the number of the clusters should be a priori known, they
suffer from numerical problems, like sensitiveness to the
initialization, etc. This paper studies the synergistic combination of
the hierarchical and graph theoretic minimal spanning tree based
clustering algorithm with the partitional Gath-Geva fuzzy clustering
algorithm. The aim of this hybridization is to increase the robustness
and consistency of the clustering results and to decrease the number
of the heuristically defined parameters of these algorithms to
decrease the influence of the user on the clustering results. For the
analysis of the resulted fuzzy clusters a new fuzzy similarity measure
based tool has been presented. The calculated similarities of the
clusters can be used for the hierarchical clustering of the resulted
fuzzy clusters, which information is useful for cluster merging and
for the visualization of the clustering results. As the examples used
for the illustration of the operation of the new algorithm will show,
the proposed algorithm can detect clusters from data with arbitrary
shape and does not suffer from the numerical problems of the
classical Gath-Geva fuzzy clustering algorithm.},
