In this study, a maximizing model of Bezdek-like spherical fuzzy c-means clustering is proposed, which is based on the regularization of the maximizing model of spherical hard c-means. Such a maximizing model was unclear in Bezdek-like method, whereas other types of methods have been investigated well both in minimizing and maximizing model. Using theoretical analysis and numerical experiments, the classifi-cation rule of the proposed method is shown. Using numerical examples, the proposed method is shown to be valid for document clustering, because documents are represented as spherical data via term documentinverse document frequency weighting and normalization processing.
