abstract (eng):

The self-organizing map (SOM) algorithm for training of artificial neural networks is shown to be closely related to a sequential modification of EM algorithm for maximum-likelihood estimation of finite mixtures. Theestablished correspondence provides a helpful theoretical basis for interpretation of the properties of SOM algorithm and for the choice of involved parameters.
