Fundamentals of Artificial Neural Networks

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 network analysis and design skills, and a bibliography of nearly 700 references. Proceeding in a clear and logical fashion, the first two chapters present the basic building blocks and concepts of artificial neural networks and analyze the computational capabilities of the basic network architectures involved. Supervised, reinforcement, and unsupervised learning rules in simple nets are brought together in a common framework in chapter three. The convergence and solution properties of these learning rules are then treated mathematically in chapter four, using the "average learning equation" analysis approach. This organization of material makes it natural to switch into learning multilayer nets using backprop and its variants, described in chapter five. Chapter six covers most of the major neural network paradigms, while associative memories and energy minimizing nets are given detailed coverage in the next chapter. The final chapter takes up Boltzmann machines and Boltzmann learning along with other global search/optimization algorithms such as stochastic gradient search, simulated annealing, and genetic algorithms.

The book is organized into nine parts of two or three chapters each. Parts One and Two (Chapters 1-4) provide background material for those unfamiliar with basic terminology and knowledge of neuroscience. Part Three (Chapters 5 and 6) provides a technical framework by which material in the remainder of the book can be interpreted. Parts Four-Seven (Chapters 7-17) present at once the core of human neuropsychology and the core of a course in the discipline. Part Eight (Chapters 18-20) addresses issues that are relevant to understanding the current directions of thought presented in the earlier chapters. Finally, Part Nine (Chapters 21 and 22) describes applications of the new technology of neuropsychology to the everyday clinical problems facing psychologists.
