Neural Networks: A Tutorial
The subject of Neural Networks does not fit naturally into the general context of a meeting on ”Competing Interactions & Microstructures: Statics and Dynamics”. Therefore, I will try to explain what Neural Networks are, why are (some) physicists interested in them, and why is it not completely absurd to have a talk on them in such a meeting. A much extended version of my strongly biased views on the subject is given in a review article , which also contains a more detailed list of references. Here I present only an extended abstract that summarizes the main points of my talk.
