Basic Fuzzy Neuron and Fundamentals of ANN

Pp. 28-39 (12)

Pierre Lorrentz


The chapter’s aim and objectives are to provide an artificial neural-based fuzzy-logic foundation, and a general framework for design and analysis of ANN systems. The first section therefore introduces membership functions, define and give a relatively full operational description of fuzzy-logic neuron. Subsequent section two introduces ANN design principles and analysis from which a general wave neural network is derived. A full understanding of this chapter may be sufficient to design and analyse any artificial neural network system.
