### Implementing Procrustes rotation for factor scores, and least damaging alternatives

I am hoping to use multiple imputation to deal with missing continuous data (measured on a scale of 0-100) before conducting exploratory factor analysis (EFA), and to obtain factor scores for each ...

### Dendrogram from Procrustean Multiple Factor Analysis

I was wondering if it was possible to create a dendrogram showing similar groups (hierarchical clusters) from the output of a Procrustean Multiple Factor Analysis. I have created some dummy data and ...

### How can this L(2,1) problem be reduced to the orthogonal procrustes problem?

NOTE: Don't take this too serious -- the question is actually due to my misreading $\|y_i - Wx_i\|^2$ as $\|y_i - Wx_i\|_2$, see the answer. Smith et al. in Offline bilingual word vectors, orthogonal ...

### Residuals of symmetric Procrustes analyses are not symmetric

I am trying to replicate the analysis I saw in a paper. One of the step is to describe the relationships between two data tables. I use the procrustes() function ...

### Does RMSD-based estimation conserve the estimated data distribution?

Let's say I have two sets of paired points $\{x_i\}_{i=1..n}$, $\{y_i\}_{i=1..n}$ defined in an $N$-dimensional space and I want to use the Kabsch algorithm to estimate the best rotation matrix / ...

### How to prove that new data fits old PCA

I have an old dataset, for which i perform PCA, show its significance (non-randomness). Now I have new data (obtained in a bit different conditions). And I want to say that independently from ...

### Learning samples from similarity matrix

Having a set of points $X\in\mathbb{R}^{n\times d}$ and a similarity matrix $S\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times m}$, I am interested in an approximation of the second set of points $U\in \mathbb{R}^{m\times d}$....

### NMDS from Jaccard and Bray-Curtis identical. Is that a bad thing?

The dataset is ecological (species abundance), where I am calculating distances between 51 sampling sites, based on abundances of 3200 species. The species abundance values go up to 2700, and the rest ...

### how to calculate observation within and between groups variances of PCA scores

I'm kind of new here, and also not a professional statistics guy, so sorry if the answer is obvious and I'm missing something, but I looked everywhere and couldn't figure it out. I'm doing geometric ...

### Multiple linear regression through orthogonal matrices

An example of linear regression could look like: $min \sum_{i=0}^{m}||x_i A - y_i||_2^{2}$, where ${x_i, y_i} \in \mathbb{R}^n$ and $A \in \mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$. I am interested in knowing how do ...
