# Distributing n points in space

*From*: Adam Skrodzki <adamskrodzki@xxxxxxxxx>*Date*: Wed, 11 Jun 2008 13:51:51 -0700 (PDT)

Hi,

I have n points i don't have any coordinates, only thing i have is

distance matrix por each pair of points distance from one to the

other, i want to put them all in k<n dimensional space, it is probably

impossible to do it precisly what i want is to distribiute points in

space in in the way that minimize sum of diference between proper

distance and the real one. Is there any solution of this, does the

problem have any official name?

Thanks for replay

Adam
