MATLAB Implementations and Applications of the Self-Organizing Map
The famous "Self-Organizing Map" (SOM) data-analysis algorithm developed by Professor Teuvo Kohonen has resulted in thousands of applications in science and technology. This book is the first-ever practical introduction to SOM programming, especially targeted to newcomers in the field. With several examples and in a clear detailed way, Prof. Kohonen here explains how various data-analysis problems can be approached with SOM analysis, what preprocessing steps are needed, and how the scripts of the SOM algorithm can be encoded. The text is particularly suitable for self-studying and as a collateral material for exercises in data mining courses. Author: Teuvo Kohonen |
