Issue No. 05 - May (1969 vol. 18)
An algorithm for the analysis of multivariate data is presented along with some experimental results. The algorithm is based upon a point mapping of N L-dimensional vectors from the L-space to a lower-dimensional space such that the inherent data "structure" is approximately preserved.
Clustering, dimensionality reduction, mappings, multidimensional scaling, multivariate data analysis, nonparametric, pattern recognition, statistics.
