Theory of the backpropagation neural network

  title={Theory of the backpropagation neural network},
  author={Robert Hecht-Nielsen},
  journal={International 1989 Joint Conference on Neural Networks},
  pages={593-605 vol.1}
The author presents a survey of the basic theory of the backpropagation neural network architecture covering architectural design, performance measurement, function approximation capability, and learning. The survey includes previously known material, as well as some new results, namely, a formulation of the backpropagation neural network architecture to make it a valid neural network (past formulations violated the locality of processing restriction) and a proof that the backpropagation mean… CONTINUE READING
