This might be OK, but I do think that there are some better treatments
of this material in the literature that might make that unnecessary.
For example, the chapters in Hertz, Krough, & Palmer, though somewhat
brief, are fairly clear. Perhaps others on the list have other
suggestions for good recent treatments? BTW, I found the Kohonen
presentation of his ideas not particularly easy to understand too.
