Applied Multidimensional Scaling and Unfolding
Language: en
Pages: 122
Authors: Ingwer Borg, Patrick J.F. Groenen, Patrick Mair

Type: BOOK - Published: 2018-05-16 - Publisher: Springer

This book introduces multidimensional scaling (MDS) and unfolding as data analysis techniques for applied researchers. MDS is used for the analysis of proximity data on a set of objects, representing the data as distances between points in a geometric space (usually of two dimensions). Unfolding is a related method that

Multidimensional scaling (MDS) is a technique for the analysis of similarity or dissimilarity data on a set of objects. Such data may be intercorrelations of test items, ratings of similarity on political candidates, or trade indices for a set of countries. MDS attempts to model such data as distances among
