This book introduces neural networks, their operation, and application, in the context of the interactive Mathematica environment. Readers will learn how to simulate neural network operations using Mathematica, and will learn techniques for employing Mathematica to assess neural network behavior and performance. For students of neural networks in upper-level undergraduate or beginning graduate courses in computer science, engineering, and related areas. Also for researchers and practitioners interested in using Mathematica as a research tool.Features
