By Chapman and Hall/CRC
Constrained Clustering: Advances in Algorithms, Theory, and Applications (Chapman &
Hall/CRC Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery Series) Details:
Since the initial work on constrained clustering, there have been numerous advances in
methods, applications, and our understanding of the theoretical properties of constraints
and constrained clustering algorithms. Bringing these developments together,
Constrained
Clustering: Advances in Algorithms, Theory, and Applications
presents an extensive
collection of the latest innovations in clustering data analysis methods that use background
knowledge encoded as constraints.
Algorithms

The first five chapters of this volume investigate advances in the use of instance-level,
pairwise constraints for partitional and hierarchical clustering. The book then explores
other types of constraints for clustering, including cluster size balancing, minimum cluster
size,and cluster-level relational constraints.
Theory

It also describes variations of the traditional clustering under constraints problem as well as
approximation algorithms with helpful performance guarantees.
Applications

The book ends by applying clustering with constraints to relational data,
privacy-preserving data publishing, and video surveillance data. It discusses an interactive
visual clustering approach, a distance metric learning approach, existential constraints, and
automatically generated constraints.
With contributions from industrial researchers and leading academic experts who
pioneered the field, this volume delivers thorough coverage of the capabilities and
limitations of constrained clustering methods as well as introduces new types of constraints
and clustering algorithms.
Separation anxiety and bedtime fears are not the only bogeymen that plague toddlers.
Simple things like loud and big moving objects, huge bodies of water, or friendly,
approaching animals can trigger the fear button in children. Don't panic, scold, or ridicule
them; remember it is a normal part of development. While your children are dealing with
exploring this new world, here is what you can do:  Respect their feelings: Their fears are
real to your children. If you berate or ignore them for being fearful, they will just stop
telling you about them. Assure your children with understanding; do not drive them into a
shell.  Give them control: Children are afraid, as they feel powerless with regard to their
fears. Talk to them and discuss these fears. Prepare them for the new things and unfamiliar
situations. A feeling of being in-control will replace the fears that they have. If you are
accompanying your kids to the zoo, for example, prepare them to meet and greet animals
there, and face noisy crowds etc.  Do not react adversely: One fallout of any fear episode is
that you try to protect them from all new stimuli. DON'T! That is the worst possible
reaction. Control your extreme parental instincts; guide your children around in the world
and gently introduce them to the unknowns.  Positive reinforcement: When your toddlers
tide over any of their fears, reinforce the transition. From time to time, remind them of
these achievements, so that winning over fears seems easy to them. Fears are especially
palpable to children in the dark and this may cause a lot of trouble at bedtime. During these
moments, it is essential to be supportive - but the goal in the long run should be to help your
toddlers develop the skills and confidence to work their fears out on their own.
Understanding what your child is going through and having a few coping strategies in
reserve can go a long way toward helping both of you get through toddler separation
anxiety. Here are a few suggestions to help your kids cope:  Be sympathetic - but not
overprotective  Listen and then talk - let your toddlers talk out their bad dreams. It's your
job then to assure them that dreams are not real and there is nothing to be scared of  Don't
prolong the good-byes - this only adds to their anxiety  Reassure them that you'll be back
soon - give them an approximate time and then keep your promise  Help them develop
skills - give your toddlers a small lamp to help them sleep or teach them to use a small flash
light to learn to use the potty on their own Paul Banas is a founder of GreatDad.com. He
