The analysis of proximities: Multidimensional scaling with an unknown distance function. II

The analysis of proximities: Multidimensional scaling with an unknown distance function. II Abstract The first in the present series of two papers described a computer program for multidimensional scaling on the basis of essentially nonmetric data. This second paper reports the results of two kinds of test applications of that program. The first application is to artificial data generated by monotonically transforming the interpoint distances in a known spatial configuration. The purpose is to show that the recovery of the original metric configuration does not depend upon the particular transformation used.

Abstract

Abstract The first in the present series of two papers described a computer program for multidimensional scaling on the basis of essentially nonmetric data. This second paper reports the results of two kinds of test applications of that program. The first application is to artificial data generated by monotonically transforming the interpoint distances in a known spatial configuration. The purpose is to show that the recovery of the original metric configuration does not depend upon the particular transformation used. The second application is to measures of interstimulus similarity and confusability obtained from some actual psychological experiments.
