Rotating Factors: The Geometric Picture
It has been pointed out in the last chapter that in factor analysis as in most scientific analysis systems, e.g., the mathematical structure of the atom, the same model can be presented either algebraically or geometrically. Having given in Chapter 2 the algebraic and arithmetic meaning of a factor common to several variables we now propose to reinforce it by a geometrical, graphic presentation and to use this as the clearest approach to the next step—that of rotation.
