Classical Multidimensional Scaling

Hi, I am doing an MDS with a distance matrix coming from geodesic distances between points X on a 3d mesh (ie., not euclidean distances), and try to find points Y in euclidean space which best ...

Cluster-preserving and distance-maximizing embedding into Hamming Space?

I have a set of data, each instance in the real $[0,1]^{d}$. However, it's actually all in a relatively small range around 0.5, clustered into classes in even smaller ranges. The actual origin of the ...

Unusual function computation in signal processing

Hi, I wonder if there is 'an operation' that allow me to compute this special function faster than square-time $O(n^2)$. Assume we have functions $f(x)$ and $h(x)$. $h(x)$ has a special point ...
