## A Guide to Neural Computing ApplicationsOutlines how to make use of neural networks and teaches readers how to avoid some of the obvious, and not so obvious pitfalls which often lead to the unnecessary failure of objects. This unique book enables engineers to construct robust and meaningful non-linear models and classifiers, and benefits the more experienced practitioner. |
