# An Introduction to Neural Networks

By Kevin Gurney

Notwithstanding mathematical rules underpin the research of neural networks, the writer provides the basics with out the entire mathematical gear. All elements of the sector are tackled, together with synthetic neurons as versions in their genuine opposite numbers; the geometry of community motion in trend area; gradient descent tools, together with back-propagation; associative reminiscence and Hopfield nets; and self-organization and have maps. The characteristically tough subject of adaptive resonance thought is clarified inside of a hierarchical description of its operation. The e-book additionally contains numerous real-world examples to supply a concrete concentration. this could increase its entice these concerned about the layout, building and administration of networks in advertisement environments and who desire to increase their knowing of community simulator applications. As a finished and hugely available creation to at least one of crucial issues in cognitive and laptop technology, this quantity may still curiosity a variety of readers, either scholars and pros, in cognitive technology, psychology, machine technology and electric engineering.
