(Some additions and refinements are planned for this document so it
will stay in the draft status still for a while.)
Comments are welcome.



This report has the purpose of describing several algorithms from the literature all related to competitive learning. A uniform terminology is used for all methods. Moreover, identical examples are provided to allow a qualitative comparisons of the methods. The complete Java source code as well as a postscript version of this document may be accessed by ftp.
