"Rarely do books come along with an information density and value of content far above average. We now have another book in this category...a marvelous tool for finding just about any information that exists regarding self-organising maps. Rarely has any subject been provided with such an index of knowledge...Kohonen has created a masterpiece. I unhesitatingly recommend it." IEEE

The Self-Organizing Map (SOM), with its variants, is the most popular artificial neural network algorithm in the unsupervised learning category. Many fields of science have adopted the SOM as a standard analytical tool: in statistics, signal processing, control theory, financial analyses, experimental physics, chemistry and medicine. A new area is organization of very large document collections. The SOM is also one of the most realistic models of the biological brain functions. This new edition includes a survey of over 2000 contemporary studies to cover the newest results; the case examples were provided with detailed formulae, illustrations and tables; a new chapter on software tools for SOM was written, other chapters were extended or reorganized.
