Dear everybody!
In the function hclust, at each stage distances between clusters are recomputed by the Lance-Williams dissimilarity update formula according to the particular clustering method being used. Using "centroid" method, Lance-Williams recurrence formula works properly only for euclidean distance. How is it possible to use properly centroid method with manhattan distance ? Thanks
