Three Way Scaling: A Guide to Multidimensional Scaling and Clustering / Edition 1

Three Way Scaling assumes a working knowledge of multidimensional scaling and Matrix Algebra, which are both introduced in earlier volumes of this series. Arabie, Carroll and DeSarbo begin their discussion with an example of the use of the INDSCAL model, they explain the model and give a second extended example. The authors then present a detailed analysis of SINDSCAL and provide an introduction to three-way scaling models as well as individual differences clustering models.
