Dynamical Analysis of Continuous Higher-Order Hopfield Networks for Combinatorial Optimization

In this letter, the ability of higher-order Hopfield networks to solve combinatorial optimization problems is assessed by means of a rigorous analysis of their properties. The stability of the continuous network is almost completely clarified: (1) hyperbolic interior equilibria, which are unfeasible, are unstable; (2) the state cannot escape from the… CONTINUE READING
