Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 209)


The interest of researchers from different scientific disciplines in the research area of neural networks grows as the list of applications of neural networks becomes longer. The recent interest in neural networks is reinforced by the complexity and diversity of the problems that can be successfully treated using neural networks. At this stage of research, the successful application of neural networks to new problems is crucial for the evolution of this research field in the future. In addition to its practical value, any new application gives rise to new efforts in theoretical aspects of this research field, such as the evaluation of the performance of existing neural network architectures and learning schemes, the search for alternative neural network architectures, and the development of fast and efficient learning algorithms.
