Abstract: The partitional clustering concept started with K-means algorithm which was published in 1957. Since then many classical partitional clustering algorithms have been reported based on gradient descent approach. The 1990 kick started a new era in cluster analysis with the application of nature inspired metaheuristics. After initial formulation nearly two decades have passed and researchers have developed numerous new algorithms in this field. This paper embodies an up-to-date review of all major nature inspired metaheuristic algorithms employed till date for partitional clustering. Further, key issues involved during formulation of various metaheuristics as a clustering problem and major application areas are discussed.
