We present a generalized version of spectral clustering using the graph p-Laplacian, a nonlinear generalization of the standard graph Laplacian. We show that the second eigenvector of the graph p-Laplacian interpolates between a relaxation of the normalized and the Cheeger cut. Moreover, we prove that in the limit as p ! 1 the cut found by thresholding the second eigenvector of the graph p-Laplacian converges to the optimal Cheeger cut. Furthermore, we provide an efficient numerical scheme to compute the second eigenvector of the graph p- Laplacian. The experiments show that the clustering found by p-spectral clustering is at least as good as normal spectral clustering, but often leads to signifi cantly better results.
