When should I use classical k-means clustering and when should I use trimmed k-means clustering?

I suspect that if there are many unimportant outliers, trimmed k-mean clustering should be employed.

Am I on the right track?

• Yes. The original trimmed $k$-means1997 paper by Cuesta-Albertos et al. did exactly that. May 14, 2017 at 0:28
