Clustering analysis is an important topic in data mining, where data points that are similar to each other are grouped together. Graph clustering deals with clustering analysis of data points that correspond to vertices on a graph. We first survey some most well known algorithms for clustering analysis. Then for graph clustering we note that one of the fundamental factors is the distance measure between vertices. We further examine various known venues for defining such measures and propose some others.
