Hi,

Is there some one that know why the clustering technique is named Beowulf?

According to a viking saga was Beowulf  a king that ruled //the kingdom 
of Geat, (Gothia, Götaland that is located in west Sweden) around year 
500, i.e. about 700 year before the rise of the  Swedish nation.



Best regards
