InitialNeighbors


Unit:SDL_kohonen
Class:TKohonen
Declaration:property InitialNeighbors: integer;

The property InitialNeighbors defines the initial range of the neighborhood in the Kohonen map. InitialNeighbors is set to 2, by default. The neighborhood decreases during training. For more information on the training algorithm, please refer to the Kohonen network description.

Hint: It is a good idea to start with InitialNeighbors set to approx. half the diagonal of the Kohonen map (i.e. InitialNeighbors should be set to sqrt(SizeX *SizeX+SizeY *SizeY);

Example: This property is used in the following example program (see http://www.lohninger.com/examples.html for downloading the code): kohmap
