The Glory of Suboptimal Factor Rotation: Why Local Minima in Analytic Optimization of Simple Structure Are More Blessing than Curse.
Rozeboom, William W.
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v27 n4 p585-99 1992
Enriching factor rotation algorithms with the capacity to conduct repeated searches from random starting points can make the tendency to converge to optima that are merely local a way to catch rotations of the input factors that might otherwise elude discovery. Use of the HYBALL computer program is discussed. (SLD)
