Evolutionary Clustering has emerged as an important research topic in recent literature of data mining, and solutions to this problem have found a wide spectrum of applications, particularly in social network analysis. In this paper, based on the recent literature on Dirichlet processes, we have developed two different and specific models as solutions to this problem: DPChain and HDP-EVO. Both models substantially advance the literature on evolutionary clustering in the sense that not only they both perform better than the existing literature, but more importantly they are capable of automatically learning the cluster numbers and structures during the evolution. Extensive evaluations have demonstrated the effectiveness and promise of these models against the state-of-the-art literature.
