This paper presents a simple learning algorithm for self-organizing maps having ring topology and considers its application to TSP. The algorithm has only two control parameters and the map structure can grow by occasional inspection of the teaming history. Some experimental results suggest that this simple algorithm enables the map to extract feature of input data and to find almost optimal solution of the TSP.
