Feedback neural networks enjoy considerable popularity as a means of approximately solving combinatorial optimization problems. It is now well established how to map problems onto networks so that invalid solutions are never found. It is not as clear how the networks' solutions compare in terms of quality with those obtained using other optimization techniques; such issues are addressed in this paper. A linearized analysis of annealed network dynamics allows a prototypical network solution to… CONTINUE READING
