Neural Network Design
Martin Hagan (January 2002) | English | ISBN: 0971732108 | PDF | 734 Pages | 10 MB
I knew the very poor Matlab Neural Network Toolbox User's Guide by the same authors and I was kind of expecting the same, and boy was I wrong!
This book is simply brilliant, a miracle of pedagogy. It is intended for undergrad classes, but it is so clear that graduate students will benefit enormously from reading it before any other material. Plainly put, this book makes you UNDERSTAND this difficult topic, more than any other book that I know of (Zurada, Smith, Hassoun, Haykin, Duda-Hart, Caudill, etc)
A selection of worked out problems are included at the end of each chapter, a practice that is highly beneficial but alas too rare in books of the kind.
I very much appreciated the very clear exposition of backpropagation, and optimization methods such as Levenberg-Marquardt.
A note to Matlab users: funky demos are available for free and illustrate the main points of the book.
