We study incremental algorithms operating on one- and two-hidden-layer neural networks with linear output units in such way that in each iteration, some new hidden units are put in the first or in the second hidden layer. The weight parameters of the new units are determined and output weights of all units are recalculated. We apply the algorithms to the special class of functions (for predictions of geomagnetic storms).1
