I want to look at reconstituting the data. Equivalently, I want to look at setting successive singular values to zero.
This example was actually built on the previous one. Before I set the row sums to 1, I had started with
I’m going to continue with Harmon’s & Bartholomew’s model: Z = A F, Z = X^T, X is standardized, A is an eigenvector matrix weighted by the square roots of the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix of X.
I want data with one eigenvalue so large that we could sensibly retain only that one. Let me show you how I got that.
