2.2 Performance Methodology

The methodology used to assess the performance of cluster identification can be divided into three phases: algorithm selection, algorithm implementation and verification, and data collection and interpretation. The selection, verification, and data collection phases are applicable to both sequential and parallel implementations and are discussed together. Significant differences in the sequential and parallel implementations, however, are discussed independently.
