This paper gives a brief description of several well known fuzzy objective function clustering algorithms, and discusses the convergence properties of this type of algorithm. The Shape Seeker algorithm, an adaptive norm algorithm, is then described in detail, and convergence established. It is compared to the other algorithms by examining the clusterings it produces on several data sets.
