    MLE of multinomial distribution with missing values

    Hi, I am trying to solve a problem and the results I get seem counter-intuitive. We randomly throw n balls into an area partitioned into 3 bins b_1,b_2,b_3. The size of each bins is proportional to the probability the ball will fall in it. Let's call these probabilities p_1,p_2,p_3. This...

    Multidimensional scaling with threshold values

    Hi, I have a matrix of L2 (euclidean) distances and would like to perform multidimensional scaling in order to retrieve the positions of the points which generated this set of distances. I say "retrieve" because I know that these distances were actually generated by real points (plus some...
