Conventional model-based data processing methods are computationally expensive and require experts' knowledge for the modelling of a system; neural networks provide a model-free, adaptive, parallel-processing solution.Neural Networks in a Softcomputing Frameworkpresents a thorough review of the most popular neural-network methods and their associated techniques.

This concise but comprehensive textbook provides a powerful and universal paradigm for information processing. Each chapter provides state-of-the-art descriptions of the important major research results of the respective neural-network methods. A range of relevant computational intelligence topics, such as fuzzy logic and evolutionary algorithms, are introduced. These are powerful tools for neural-network learning. Array signal processing problems are discussed in order to illustrate the applications of each neural-network model.

Neural Networks in a Softcomputing Frameworkis an ideal textbook for graduate students and researchers in this field because in addition to grasping the fundamentals, they can discover the most recent advances in each of the popular models. The systematic survey of each neural-network model and the exhaustive list of references will enable researchers and students to find suitable topics for future research. The important algorithms outlined also make this textbook a valuable reference for scientists and practitioners working in pattern recognition, signal processing, speech and image processing, data analysis and artificial intelligence.

Dr. K. -L. Du  received the B. Eng. degree from Tianjin University of Science and Technology in 1992, and the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China, in 1995 and 1998 respectively. From 1998, he was employed by Huawei Technologies, and then by China Academy of Telecommunications Techn...
