Conference paper


This paper is concerned with radial basis function neural networks. A new method is described by which means radial basis function centres can be selected. The method is based on a mean tracking clustering algorithm and it is shown how the approach provides a good procedure for radial basis function centre selection. Results are given which indicate how the method realises a network with excellent approximation properties.
