 Abstract
Fuzzy k-means clustering is an attractive alternative to the ordinary k-means clustering in analyzing multivariate data. Fuzzy versions yield more natural output by allowing overlapped k groups. In this study, we modify a fuzzy k-means clustering algorithm to be used for undirected social networks, apply the algorithm to both real and simulated cases, and report the results.
