Additive trees are graph-theoretic models that can be used for constructing network representations of pairwise proximity data observed on a set of N objects. Each object is represented as a terminal node in a connected graph; the length of the paths connecting the nodes reflects the inter-object proximities. Carroll, Clark, and DeSarbo (J Classif 1:25–74, 1984) developed the INDTREES algorithm for fitting additive trees to analyze individual differences of proximity data collected from multiple sources. INDTREES is a mathematical programming algorithm that uses a conjugate gradient strategy for minimizing a least-squares loss function augmented by a penalty term to account for violations of the constraints as imposed by the underlying tree model. This article presents an alternative method for fitting additive trees to three-way two-mode proximity data that does not rely on gradient-based optimization nor on penalty terms, but uses an iterative projection algorithm. A real-world data set consisting of 22 proximity matrices illustrated that the proposed method gave virtually identical results as the INDTREES method.
