A new method of multidimensional scaling.
Capra, James Robert
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is based on the multidimensional scaling technique of Joseph B. Kruskal. It is comprised of three parts: The first part describes Kruskal' s objectives and introduces his goodness of fit measure, called stress; the second part discusses some problems associated with Kruskal ' s technique, focusing on the concept of stress; in the third part, an alternate goodness of fit measure, called V, is proposed, together with a different procedure for doing multidimensional scaling. Part three also includes a discussion of the superiority of V over stress as a goodness of fit measure.
