A new learning algorithm for the storage of static and periodic attractors in biologically inspired recurrent analog neural networks is introduced. For a network of n nodes, n static or n/2 periodic attractors may be stored. The algorithm allows programming of the network vector field independent of the patterns to be stored. Stability of patterns, basin geometry, and rates of convergence may be controlled. For orthonormal patterns, the l~grning operation reduces to a kind of periodic outer… CONTINUE READING
