Wavelet Network Estimating Regression Function

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 19)


In the paper we propose the wavelet network estimating the regression function from the set of learning pairs. The entire framework (consisting on the network architecture, learning algorithm and pruning procedure) is derived from the theory of non-parametric estimation of the regression function.
