Elements of Artificial Neural Networks (Complex Adaptive Systems)

Elements of Artificial Neural Networks provides a clearly organized general introduction, focusing on a broad range of algorithms, for students and others who want to use neural networks rather than simply study them.The authors, who have been developing and team teaching the material in a one-semester course over the past six years, describe most of the basic neural network models (with several detailed solved examples) and discuss the rationale and advantages of the models, as well as their limitations. The approach is practical and open-minded and requires very little mathematical or technical background. Written from a computer science and statistics point of view, the text stresses links to contiguous fields and can easily serve as a first course for students in economics and management.The opening chapter sets the stage, presenting the basic concepts in a clear and objective way and tackling important -- yet rarely addressed -- questions related to the use of neural networks in practical situations. Subsequent chapters on supervised learning (single layer and multilayer networks), unsupervised learning, and associative models are structured around classes of problems to which networks can be applied. Applications are discussed along with the algorithms. A separate chapter takes up optimization methods.The most frequently used algorithms, such as backpropagation, are introduced early on, right after perceptrons, so that these can form the basis for initiating course projects. Algorithms published as late as 1995 are also included. All of the algorithms are presented using block-structured pseudo-code, and exercises are provided throughout. Software implementing many commonly used neural network algorithms is available at the book's website.Transparency masters, including abbreviated text and figures for the entire book, are available for instructors using the text.

The Iliad
The Iliad
"Ian Johnston provides his readers with a clear and comprehensible translation of the Iliad that presents itself as a dynamic equivalent of the Greek original. Johnston captures the text with an eye to both accuracry and his modern readership." --- Dr. Andrew Porter, University of Missouri-Columbia

Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB
Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB
Numerous books have been written on Radar Systems and Radar Applications. A limited set of these books provides companion software. There is need for a comprehensive reference book that can provide the reader with hands-on-like experience. The ideal radar book, in my opinion, should serve as a conclusive, detailed, and useful reference for working...

Learning Perl
Learning Perl

Welcome to the sixth edition of Learning Perl, updated for Perl 5.14 and its latest features. This book is still good even if you are still using Perl 5.8 (although, it’s been a long time since it was released; have you thought about upgrading?).

If you’re looking for the best way to spend your first 30 to 45 hours...
