On two extensions of the vector quantization scheme
Journal de la société française de statistique, Volume 156 (2015) no. 1, pp. 51-75.

In this paper, we present results pertaining to two different extensions of vector quantization and the related question of k - means clustering. The first part of the paper is about the theoretical performance of quantization and clustering with Bregman divergences. The second one is dedicated to model selection issues for principal curves. Some numerical illustrations are provided in each case.

Dans cet article, nous présentons des résultats relatifs à deux extensions différentes de la quantification vectorielle et de la question liée de classification par la méthode des centres mobiles. La première partie de l’article concerne la performance théorique de la quantification et du clustering avec des divergences de Bregman ; la seconde est dédiée à des problèmes de sélection de modèle pour les courbes principales. Chaque partie est complétée par quelques illustrations numériques.

Keywords: quantization, clustering, Bregman divergences, principal curves, model selection
