Two "Non-Symmetric" Methods of Canonical Analysis.
Conventional canonical methods distinguish between the two variable sets being analyzed, but the methods do not attempt to optimize the variance from a given variable set that will be contained in the final solution. In this respect canonical methods are said the be "symmetric." This paper proposes two non-symmetric, canonical-like techniques that can be employed when theoretical or utility considerations suggest that one variable set (usually the criterion set) should be emphasized over the other variable set. The criteria that the two methods meet are discussed, as are various software considerations. (Author/CM)
