Multimodality exploration by an unsupervised projection pursuit neural network

Yocheved Dotan, Nathan Intrator

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Graphical inspection of multimodality is demonstrated using unsupervised lateral-inhibition neural networks. Three projection pursuit indexes are compared on low-dimensional simulated and real-world data: principal components, Legendre polynomial, and projection pursuit network.
