This study shows that a general regularized fuzzy *c*-means (rFCM) clustering algorithm, including some conventional clustering algorithms, can be constructed if a given regularizer function value, its derivative function value, and its inverse derivative function value can be calculated. Furthermore, the results of the study show that the behavior of the fuzzy classification function for rFCM at an infinity point is similar to that for some conventional clustering algorithms.
