semds: Structural Equation Multidimensional Scaling

Fits a structural equation multidimensional scaling (SEMDS) model for asymmetric and three-way input dissimilarities. It assumes that the dissimilarities are measured with errors. The latent dissimilarities are estimated as factor scores within an SEM framework while the objects are represented in a low-dimensional space as in MDS.
