Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


In Chapter 2, we have described the classical data analysis paradigm: a rectangular data matrix \(\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{X} = {\left( {{x_{kj}}} \right)_{n \times p}}\) defines the relation between the set Ω = {1,…, n}of n individuals or elementary objects and a series of variables Y1,…, Yp, where each variable Y j assumes one single category from a range y j such that each cell (k,j) of the data matrix \(\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{X}\) contains one single value xkj only.
