briKmeans: Package for Brik and Fabrik Algorithms to Initialise Kmeans

Implementation of the BRIk and FABRIk algorithms to initialise k-means. These methods are intended for the clustering of multivariate and functional data, respectively. They make use of the Modified Band Depth and bootstrap to identify appropriate initial seeds for k-means, which are proven to be better options than many techniques in the literature.
