Multidimensional scaling for symbolic interval data - SymScal algorithm

Description

Multidimensional scaling for symbolic interval data - symScal algorithm

Usage

symscal.SDA(x,d=2,calculateDist=FALSE)

Arguments

x

symbolic interval data: a 3-dimensional table, first dimension represents object number, second dimension - variable number, and third dimension contains lower- and upper-bounds of intervals (Simple form of symbolic data table)

d

Dimensionality of reduced space

calculateDist

if TRUE x are treated as raw data and min-max dist matrix is calulated. See details

Details

SymScal, which was proposed by Groenen et. al. (2005), is an adaptation of well-known nonmetric multidimensional scaling for symbolic data. It is an iterative algorithm that uses STRESS objective function. This function is unnormalized. IScal, like Interscal and SymScal, requires interval-valued dissimilarity matrix. Such dissmilarity matrix can be obtained from symbolic data matrix (that contains only interval-valued variables), judgements obtained from experts, respondents. See Lechevallier Y. (2001) for details on calculating interval-valued distance. See file ../doc/Symbolic_MDS.pdf for further details

Value

xprim

coordinates of rectangles

STRESSSym

final STRESSSym value
