The winners are divided into a number of tiers (or divisions), with each tier being rewarded differently. All the losers are penalised (which can be equally or differently). In order to study the various properties of the generalised lotto-type competitive learning, a set of equations, which governs its operations, is formulated. This is then used to analyse the stability and other dynamic properties of the generalised lotto-type competitive learning.
