I have a vector with 5 million distances [5000000*1] obtained by using the pdist function and the goal is to do hierarchical cluster analysis. However when i use the linkage function i get the following error:
Error using linkage (line 240) Requested 1x12081952473360 (90017.6GB) array exceeds maximum array size preference. Creation of arrays greater than this limit may take a long time and cause MATLAB to become unresponsive. See array size limit or preference panel for more information.
I would like to know how to avoid this error and if that's not possible, which function I should use to make the cluster analysis.
Thanks in advance.
