# pygpcca.GPCCA.minChi¶

GPCCA.minChi(m_min, m_max)[source]

Calculate the minChi indicator (see [Reuter18]) for every $$m \in [m_{min},m_{max}]$$.

The minChi indicator can be used to determine an interval $$I \subset [m_{min},m_{max}]$$ of good (potentially optimal) numbers of clusters.

Afterwards either one $$m \in I$$) or the whole interval $$I$$ is chosen as input to optimize() for further optimization.

Parameters
Return type
Returns

List of minChi indicators for cluster numbers $$m \in [m_{min},m_{max}]$$, see [Roeblitz13], [Reuter18].
