Note: The table package contains some auxiliary programs for preprocessing the data files.


LVQ is a set of programs to learn a vector quantization (a precursor of self-organizing maps) and to execute it for new data.

Note that these programs will eventually be superseded by extended clustering programs, which already contain a learning vector quantization mode.

If you have trouble executing the programs on Microsoft Windows, check whether you have the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2022 (see under "Other Tools and Frameworks") installed, as the programs were compiled with Microsoft Visual Studio 2022.

An introduction to neural networks and learning vector quantization in particular can be found in:
