This paper studies the convergence properties of a self-organizing map (SOM) equalizer. The transmitted signal is assumed to be a 4-QAM signal corrupted by an additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). Several theoretical results such as map ordering and stability conditions are given. These results show a good fit with computer simulations.
