This paper presented the results from our analysis of three items in the National Character Survey. Since we were in possession of time-series data covering a twenty-five year period, we sought both to highlight the changes in attitudes which have taken place in post-war Japan, and to offer some...
A new algorithm of multidimensional scaling is proposed. It performs metric or nonmetric analyses of two- or three-way data. It is a simple, convergent algorithm analogous to ALSCAL, but it approximately optimizes the least-squares fit of distances (not squared). This paper mainly considers the...
This paper is concerned with the first part of a series of experiments involving the image formation process of simple meaningless line figures. Iijima (1973) proposed a “mathematical figure theory” in his pattern recognition theory. In this theory he emphasizes a definition of the relationship...
A method of simultaneous scaling of categories is proposed in order to disclose the structural interdependency of a set of discrete variables, in which categories within one discrete variable are regarded as a set of dummy variables. From this viewpoint, we propose a tentative method of...
A “formal coalition” in a voting body is defined as a subgroup of members in which their vote is completely dependent, voting as a bloc. The formation of such a formal coalition sometimes yields the unexpected effects on the power of members in the voting body. They are the non-increase of power...
The present paper is a review of recent theoretical and methodological developments in multidimensional scaling and its related methods in Japan. The term multidimensional scaling (MDS) is used in two senses. One is a narrow sense, and the other is a wider sense. The former is a technical term...
