Cuts a tree, e.g., as resulting from
hclust, into several groups either by specifying the desired number(s) of groups or the cut height(s).
cutree(tree, k = NULL, h = NULL)
At least one of
h must be specified,
h if both are given.
Cutting trees at a given height is only possible for ultrametric trees (with monotone clustering heights).
cutree returns a vector with group memberships if
h are scalar, otherwise a matrix with group memberships is returned where each column corresponds to the elements of
h, respectively (which are also used as column names).
