 Parameters
 Xndarray of shape (n_samples, n_features), or (n_samples, n_samples) if metric=’precomputed’.
A feature array, or array of distances between samples if metric=’precomputed’
 min_samplesint > 1 or float between 0 and 1
The number of samples in a neighborhood for a point to be considered as a core point. Expressed as an absolute number or a fraction of the number of samples (rounded to be at least 2).
 max_epsfloat, default=np.inf
The maximum distance between two samples for one to be considered as in the neighborhood of the other. Default value of
np.inf
will identify clusters across all scales; reducingmax_eps
will result in shorter run times. metricstr or callable, default=’minkowski’
Metric to use for distance computation. Any metric from scikitlearn or scipy.spatial.distance can be used.
If metric is a callable function, it is called on each pair of instances (rows) and the resulting value recorded. The callable should take two arrays as input and return one value indicating the distance between them. This works for Scipy’s metrics, but is less efficient than passing the metric name as a string. If metric is “precomputed”, X is assumed to be a distance matrix and must be square.
Valid values for metric are:
from scikitlearn: [‘cityblock’, ‘cosine’, ‘euclidean’, ‘l1’, ‘l2’, ‘manhattan’]
from scipy.spatial.distance: [‘braycurtis’, ‘canberra’, ‘chebyshev’, ‘correlation’, ‘dice’, ‘hamming’, ‘jaccard’, ‘kulsinski’, ‘mahalanobis’, ‘minkowski’, ‘rogerstanimoto’, ‘russellrao’, ‘seuclidean’, ‘sokalmichener’, ‘sokalsneath’, ‘sqeuclidean’, ‘yule’]
See the documentation for scipy.spatial.distance for details on these metrics.
 pint, default=2
Parameter for the Minkowski metric from
pairwise_distances
. When p = 1, this is equivalent to using manhattan_distance (l1), and euclidean_distance (l2) for p = 2. For arbitrary p, minkowski_distance (l_p) is used. metric_paramsdict, default=None
Additional keyword arguments for the metric function.
 algorithm{‘auto’, ‘ball_tree’, ‘kd_tree’, ‘brute’}, default=’auto’
Algorithm used to compute the nearest neighbors:
‘ball_tree’ will use
BallTree
‘kd_tree’ will use
KDTree
‘brute’ will use a bruteforce search.
‘auto’ will attempt to decide the most appropriate algorithm based on the values passed to
fit
method. (default)
Note: fitting on sparse input will override the setting of this parameter, using brute force.
 leaf_sizeint, default=30
Leaf size passed to
BallTree
orKDTree
. This can affect the speed of the construction and query, as well as the memory required to store the tree. The optimal value depends on the nature of the problem. n_jobsint, default=None
The number of parallel jobs to run for neighbors search.
None
means 1 unless in ajoblib.parallel_backend
context.1
means using all processors. See Glossary for more details.
 Returns
 ordering_array of shape (n_samples,)
The cluster ordered list of sample indices.
 core_distances_array of shape (n_samples,)
Distance at which each sample becomes a core point, indexed by object order. Points which will never be core have a distance of inf. Use
clust.core_distances_[clust.ordering_]
to access in cluster order. reachability_array of shape (n_samples,)
Reachability distances per sample, indexed by object order. Use
clust.reachability_[clust.ordering_]
to access in cluster order. predecessor_array of shape (n_samples,)
Point that a sample was reached from, indexed by object order. Seed points have a predecessor of 1.
