 Other two-sets Procrustes problems

Show Summary Details


This chapter briefly reviews other choices of T, such as when T is of given rank or is a permutation, symmetric, or positive matrix. It discusses double Procrustes problems of the form: where S and T are orthogonal. It is shown that S and T may be restricted in other ways, but these appear to be of little interest and are not discussed here.

Keywords: two-sets Procrustes; permutations; reduced range regression
