Fundamentals of Artificial Neural Networks
Mohamad H. HassounISBN: 026208239X; 9780262082396;
As book review editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks , Mohamad Hassoun has had the opportunity to assess the multitude of books on artificial neural networks that have appeared in recent years. Now, in Fundamentals of Artificial Neural Networks , he provides the first systematic account of artificial neural network paradigms by identifying clearly the fundamental concepts and major methodologies underlying most of the current theory and practice employed by neural network researchers. Such a systematic and unified treatment, although sadly lacking in most recent texts on neural networks, makes the subject more accessible to students and practitioners. Here, important results are integrated in order to more fully explain a wide range of existing empirical observations and commonly used heuristics. There are numerous illustrative examples, over 200 end-of-chapter analytical and computer-based problems that will aid in the development of neural...
