you can read that paper here:

http://www.bradblock.com/Top_10_algorithms_in_data_mining.pdf

and papers on the algorithms discussed as well as many more here:

http://www.bradblock.com/mll.html

if you need examples of how these algorithms have been used, i've applied almost all of them to some problem or another.
