Synopses & Reviews
Neural Networks The concepts of neural-network models and techniques of parallel distributed processing are comprehensively presented in a three-step approach: - After a brief overview of the neural structure of the brain and the history of neural-network modeling, the reader is introduced to associative memory, preceptrons, feature-sensitive networks, learning strategies, and practical applications. - The second part covers more advanced subjects such as the statistical physics of spin glasses, the mean-field theory of the Hopfield model, and the "space of interactions" approach to the storage capacity of neural networks. - In the self-contained final part, seven programs that provide practical demonstrations of neural-network models and their learning strategies are discussed. The software is included on a 3 1/2-inch MS-DOS diskette. The source code can be modified using Borland's TURBO-C 2.0 compiler, the Microsoft C compiler (5.0), or compatible compilers.
Review
"I have enjoyed using the previous edition of this well-known book both as a personal text and as a class manual. Although it claims to be only an introduction, it contains a wealth of material and addresses real problems in physics." Computing Reviews
