  author={Norman Hendrich},
The binary-couplings neural network used as an associative memory is studied under the eeects of synaptic damage. The model of damage is to ip synapses (Jij ! ?Jij) randomly with a probability. A simple model based on a network with constant stabilities is proposed that allows the calculation of the storage properties of the damaged networks. The networks prove to be fault-tolerant at low storage densities, the fraction of bit-errors in the stored patterns being nite but very small up to high… CONTINUE READING
