In three-mode principal components analysis, the P x Q x R core matrix "G" can be transformed to simple structure before it is interpreted. This paper shows that, when P=QR-1, G can be transformed to have nearly all the elements equal to values specified a priori. A closed-form solution for this transformation is offered. (SLD)
