Effects of Irregular Topology in Spherical Self-Organizing Maps
AbstractThe authors explore the effect of different topologies on properties of self-organizing maps (SOM). They suggest several diagnostics for measuring topology-induced errors in SOM and use these in a comparison of four different topologies. The results show that SOM is less sensitive to localized irregularities in the network structure than the literature may otherwise suggest. Further, the results support the use of spherical topologies as a solution to the boundary problem in traditional SOM.
