In this paper we discuss how three types of fuzzy partitions can be used to describe the results of three types of cluster structures. Standard fuzzy partitions are suitable for centroid based clusters, and I-fuzzy partitions for clusters represented by segments or lines (e.g., c-varieties). In this paper, we introduce hesitant fuzzy partitions. They are suitable for clusters defined by sets of centroids. Because of that, we show that they are useful for hierarchical clustering. We also establish the relationship between hesitant fuzzy partitions and I-fuzzy partitions.
