Modern Multidimensional Scaling Summary

Modern Multidimensional Scaling: Theory and Applications by I. Borg

The first edition was released in 1996 and has sold close to 2200 copies.

Provides an up-to-date comprehensive treatment of MDS, a statistical technique used to analyze the structure of similarity or dissimilarity data in multidimensional space.

The authors have added three chapters and exercise sets. The text is being moved from SSS to SSPP.

The book is suitable for courses in statistics for the social or managerial sciences as well as for advanced courses on MDS.

All the mathematics required for more advanced topics is developed systematically in the text.

Modern Multidimensional Scaling Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

[Modern Multidimensional Scaling: Theory and Applications] is without a doubt the most comprehensive and most rigorous book on MDS...The second edition is considerably (140 pages) longer than the first, mostly because of much more material on MDS of rectangluar matrices (also known as unfolding) and MDS of asymmetric matrices is included...this is currently by far the best available book on MDS, and it is quite likely to stay in that position for a long time. Journal of Statistical Software, August 2005

This is an updated and expanded version of the first edition ... . the exercises at the end of each chapter are an attractive feature. I can recommend the book enthusiastically. (W.J. Krzanowski, Short Book Reviews, Vol. 26 (1), 2006)

The authors provide a comprehensive treatment of multidimensional scaling (MDS), a family of statistical techniques for analyzing similarity or dissimilarity data on a set of objects. ... This book may be used as an introduction to MDS for students in psychology, sociology and marketing ... . It is also well suited for a variety of advanced courses on MDS topics. (Ivan Krivy, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1085, 2006)
