The linear theory of neuron networks: The static problem

  • Walter Pitts
Article

Abstract

The construction of a theory of activity in neuron networks of arbitrary topological structure is commenced under the linear excitation hypothesis: we consider conditions for possible steady-state equilibria, deferring a dynamical treatment to the sequel.
