Hierarchical clustering for histogram data
Published Online: Aug 10 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wics.1405
Symbolic data methods form one solution to the problem of massively large data sets emerging from aggregating (larger) data sets. One format is histogram‐valued data in ℝp, instead of classical point data. This article considers constructing hierarchies using a divisive polythetic algorithm based on dissimilarity measures for histogram observations.

Developments in pseudo‐random number generators
Published Online: Aug 08 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wics.1404
We review some classical pseudo‐random number generators (PRNGs) currently used in R and recent generators that are efficient, have huge period lengths, and great statistical and empirical properties. We also discuss methods for efficiently finding PRNGs with these excellent properties and for designing PRNGs for parallel random number generation.
