Re-Evaluation of Monte Carlo Studies in Nonmetric Multidimensional Scaling
Clark, Andrew K.
Psychometrika, 41, 3, 401-3, Sep 76
Critical examination is made of the recent controversy over the value of Monte Carlo techniques in nonmetric multidimensional scaling procedures. The case is presented that the major relevance of Monte Carlo studies is not for the local minima problem but for the meaningfulness of the obtained solutions. (Author)
