In recent years residual neural networks (ResNets) as introduced by He et al. [17] have become very popular in a large number of applications, including in image classification and segmentation. They provide a new perspective in training very deep neural networks without suffering the vanishing gradient problem. In this article we show that ResNets are able to approximate solutions of Kolmogorov partial differential equations (PDEs) with constant diffusion and possibly nonlinear drift…
