Hi! I am Rhyeu.

I have been interested in Bayesian clustering and tried to test some packages and "BHC" package.

And I have had a question.

what is the role of the 'itemLables' in bhc function?

I have thought that it provides a sort of a prior imformation in clustering.. but when I test in Fisher's iris data, It have not made some differents....

I have been wrong to employ this function or had some misunderstanding??

I already have changed 'randomised' and 'numReps' options. They have not affect the results as I thought.

and I have already read some articles related this package and I found that my result is same as 'Lowing and Bomalaski, 2017''s results that removed 'Species labels'. I have not been sure that how to apply 'Species Label' in this function.

I attached the code that I tested as follow.

thanks for reading this question.
