Parallel branch and bound for multidimensional scaling with city-block distances
Multidimensional scaling is a technique for exploratory analysis of multidimensional data. The essential part of the technique is minimization of a multimodal function with unfavorable properties like invariants and non-differentiability. Recently a branch and bound algorithm for multidimensional scaling with city-block distances has been proposed for solution of medium-size problems exactly. The algorithm exploits piecewise quadratic structure of the objective function. In this paper a parallel version of the branch and bound algorithm for multidimensional scaling with city-block distances has been proposed and investigated. Parallel computing enabled solution of larger problems what was not feasible with the sequential version. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. 2012
