Abstract

We introduce the notion of weakness of an AR. After providing the intuition, we develop a weakness-based distance-function for clustering ARs. We cluster ARs obtained from a small artificial data set through the average-linkage method. The clusters are compared with those obtained by applying a commonly used method to the same data-set.
