Abstract

We present new findings in regard to data analysis in very high dimensional spaces. We use dimensionalities up to around one million. A particular benefit of Correspondence Analysis is its suitability for carrying out an orthonormal mapping, or scaling, of power law distributed data. Power law distributed data are found in many domains. Correspondence factor analysis provides a latent semantic or principal axes mapping. Our experiments use data from digital chemistry and finance, and other statistically generated data.
