`cutoff_first_bin.Rd`

Uses the heuristic from the original Mapper paper to cut a given hierarchical cluster tree at the threshold corresponding to the first empty of a histogram of the linkage distances.

cutoff_first_bin(hcl, diam, num_bins)

hcl | hierarchical clustering in the form an 'hclust' object. |
---|---|

diam | largest pairwise distance between the objects used to create the hierarchy. |

num_bins | Controls how many bins there are in the histogram used to determine cutoff. |
