REPRESENTING SYMMETRIC AND ASYMMETRIC SIMILARITY
RELATIONS WITH TREE AND RELATED NETWORK MODELS

I will begin with a brief survey of spatial and graph models for proximity data (e.g., judged similarity among a set of terms, communication frequencies between entities, etc). After this general survey, the specific problem of representing asymmetric proximity relations with these models or extensions of them will be addressed. In particular, I will present several proposals for extending tree models to represent asymmetric proximities.
