Clustering methods can be used to automatically group the retrieved documents into a list of meaningful categories. Document clustering involves descriptors and descriptor extraction. Descriptors are sets of words that describe the contents within the cluster. Document cluster is generally considered to be a centralized process. Example of document clustering is web document clustering. Application of document clustering can be categorized to two types that are online and offline.
