    This paper proposed a new clustering algorithm by integrating local discriminant models. Although the relationship between K-means (Discrimitive K-means) and Spectral Clustering has been discussed in kernel view, they are regarded as different types of clustering algorithms traditionally. In this paper, we have shown that K-means (Discrimitive K-means) clustering are special cases of Spectral Clustering, provided that k, which specifies the size of local neighborhood equals to n, which is the total number of data to be clustered.
