13. Old paper by Masson and Denœux

Another paper from Citeseer.

It is important that attention be paid to adapting modern statistical techniques to fuzzy data. Multidimensional scaling of fuzzy dissimilarity data does so for this technique which aims at visually helpful lower-dimensional representations of dissimilarities between objects. The nutshell idea is that similar objects are plotted as points at close distance, while dissimilar ones are farther apart. In this paper, dissimilarities are modelled by fuzzy numbers, whence objects are represented by fuzzy sets which appear in the plot as nice shadowed areas.

This paper appeared in Fuzzy Sets and Systems 128 (2002), 339-352.
