Numerous traditional Clustering algorithms for uncertain data have been proposed in the literature such as k-medoid, global kernel k-means, k-mode, u-rule, uk-means algorithm, Uncertainty-Lineage database, Fuzzy c-means algorithm. In 2003, the traditional partitioning clustering algorithm was also modified by Chau, M et al. to perform the uncertain data clustering. They presented the UK-means algorithm as a case study and illustrate how the proposed algorithm was applied. With the increasing complexity of real-world data brought by advanced sensor devices, they believed that uncertain data mining was an important and significant research area. The purpose of this paper is to present a literature study as foundation work for doing further research on traditional clustering algorithms for uncertain data, as part of PhD work of first author.

Keywords: Clustering algorithms, uncertain data, traditional partitioning.
