Groenen is professor of statistics at the Econometric Institute, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His main research interests are in data science visualization techniques, such as multidimensional scaling, unfolding, and nonlinear multivariate analysis techniques. He has coauthored both technical and more applied papers in a variety of international journals. Patrick Mair received his PhD in statistics from the University of Vienna in 2005. Since 2013 he has worked as senior lecturer in statistics at the Department of Psychology, Harvard University. His research focuses on computational and applied statistics with special emphasis on psychometric methods, such as latent variable models and multivariate exploratory techniques.


"'This book introduces the multidimensional scaling (MDS) as a psychological model and as a data analysis technique for the applied researcher. ... The book is unique in its orientation on the applied researcher, whose primary interest is in using MDS as a tool to build substantive theories. ... The primary audience of this book are psychologists, social scientists, and market researchers. No particular background knowledge is required, beyond a basic knowledge of statistics.'" (Ludwig Paditz, zbMATH 1409.62006, 2019)
