Duda & Hart (1973) (pp. 243..) has coverage of it. Ripley (1996) has a
page or so -- mainly updates concerning computational efficiency.

Over and above the original paper, is there really that much to be said?
Applications: anywhere you wnat to examine the sturcture of
n-dimensional data on a 2-d. plot.

The White (1972)and Pykett (1978) references below also address
ecomputational efficiency issues.

author="R.O. Duda and P.E. Hart",
year= 1973,
title= "Pattern Classification and Scene Analysis",
edition = "",
publisher="New York: John Wiley and Sons"

@Book{ripley ,
author = "B.D. Ripley",
title = "Pattern Recognition and Neural Networks",
publisher = "Cambridge University Press",
year = "1996"
