%X The aim of this work is the parallel implementation
of k-means in MATLAB, in order to reduce the execution time.
Specifically, a new function in MATLAB for serial k-means algorithm
is developed, which meets all the requirements for the conversion to a
function in MATLAB with parallel computations. Additionally, two
different variants for the definition of initial values are presented.
In the sequel, the parallel approach is presented. Finally, the
performance tests for the computation times respect to the numbers
of features and classes are illustrated.
