This book provides an overview of selforganizing map formation, including recent developments. Selforganizing maps form a branch of unsupervised learning, which is the study of what can be determined about the statistical properties of input data without explicit feedback from a teacher. The articles are drawn from the journal Neural Computation.The book consists of five sections. The first section looks at attempts to model the organization of cortical maps and at the theory and applications of the related artificial neural network algorithms. The second section analyzes topographic maps and their formation via objective functions. The third section discusses cortical maps of stimulus features. The fourth section discusses selforganizing maps for unsupervised data analysis. The fifth section discusses extensions of selforganizing maps, including two surprising applications of mapping algorithms to standard computer science problems: combinatorial optimization and sorting.
