Hi,

I have question about Oracle implementation of data mining algorithm - O-Cluster.

In the paper "O-Cluster: Scalable Clustering of Large High Dimensional Data Sets" is said that algorithm chooses the best cutting plan in the histogram using chi-square statistical test :

2*(observed - expected)^2/expected > 3.843 ,where

observed - histogram count of the valley expected - average of the histogram counts of the valley and the lower peak I have clustered example set of data.

I found out using Data Mining Browser where cutting planes go through and used above-mentioned equation to calculate value of chi-square and I've never got value above 3.843

Data Mining Browser shows that histogram counts are in the range <0,1> so how can it be possible to achieve value 3.843 using above-mentioned equation.

I would be grateful if someone explains me what is going on Thanks in advance
