Dear all,

I would like to perform a clustering analysis on a data frame with two coordinate variables (X and Y) and a categorical variable where only a != b can be established. As far as I understood classification analyses, they are not an option as they partition the training set only in k classes of the test set. By searching through the book "Modern Applied Statistics with S" I did not find a satisfactory solution.

I will be grateful for any suggestions.

Best regards
