On the Impossibility of Dimension Reduction in l1


The Johnson--Lindenstrauss lemma shows that any <i>n</i> points in Euclidean space (i.e., &#x211D;<sup><i>n</i></sup> with distances measured under the &ell;<inf>2</inf> norm) may be mapped down to <i>O</i>((log <i>n</i>)/&epsi;<sup>2</sup>) dimensions such that no pairwise distance is distorted by more than a (1 &plus; &epsi;) factor. Determining whether… (More)
