Abstract : A rationale is developed for least square generalized scale free matrix approximation with variable loss function. A computing algorithm is provided which appears to give results close to the theoretical least sqaure criterion. Special cases of the general case are identified as previously developed factor analytic techniques. The method is applied to seven sets of experimental data. (Author)
