Cascade Correlation convergence theorem

  • Gian Paolo Drago
  • Sandro Ridella


In this paper we prove a theorem which guarantees that the Cascade Correlation algorithm has at least a speed of convergence of order O(1/n h ), where n h is the number of hidden neurons, when approximating a function which is series of sigmoids with a finite number of terms.
