In this publication, a new conception of a neural network proposed by the author was described. It belongs to the class of self-organizing networks. The theory, structure and learning principles of the network proposed were all described. Further chapters include the application of a system of two proposed neural networks for the solution of a two-dimensional Euclides’ travelling salesman problem. The feature of the neural network system proposed is an ability to avoid unfavourable local minima. The article presents graphical results of the evaluation of the neural network system from the initialization point to the determination of the selected TSP instance.
