Letter Values in Multivariate Exploratory Data Analysis
By projecting multivariate data onto hyperplanes, letter values are used to construct a statistic for testing the hypothesis that a multivariate data set follows a completely specified distribution. Further examples of multivariate distributions whose projections have nicely spaced letter values are constructed.
