A Kohonen map is a chain or a network of neurons (neuronal network) which arranges itself in a self-organizing way, according to "stipulations" (Stimulationen?).
Linear map (One-dimensional Map)
A 1-dimensional Kohonen map (chain) adapts itself. Once a L-Shape, then a circle, finally a triangle.
Ane 2-dimensional Kohonen map (net) arranges itself. Once a L-Shape, than a circle, finally a triangle.
Adaption process of a 2-dimensional map
This animation shows the adaption process of a Kohonen map. The net starts in chaos and adapts themselves to a rectangle.
Kohonen's AlgorithmIf you are interested in further information and mathematical details, then you find complete elaboration to this topic under Download (only German, sorry).
The software makes it possible to change different parameters of the learning procedure and observe the effects. The current map can be stored at any time as picture in the EPS format (Encapsulated Postscript).
