With artificial neural network research being one of the new directions for new generation computers, current research suggests that open-box artificial higher order neural networks (HONNs) play an important role in this new direction.

Artificial Higher Order Neural Networks for Modeling and Simulation introduces artificial Higher Order Neural Networks (HONNs) to professionals working in the fields of modeling and simulation, and explains that HONN is an open-box artificial neural network tool as compared to traditional artificial neural networks. Including details of the most popular HONN models, this book provides an opportunity for practitioners in the field of modeling and simulations to understand and know how to use HONNS in their area of expertise.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial HONNs for Control and Predication
  • Artificial HONNS for Modeling and Simulation
  • Artificial HONNS for Modeling Combinatorial Optimization Problems
  • Artificial HONNS for Modeling MIMO Discrete-Time Nonlinear System
  • Artificial Multi-Polynomial HONNS
  • Artificial Polynomial and Trigonometric Higher Order Neural Network Group Models
  • Cooperative Control of Unknown Networked Lagrange Systems Using Higher Order Neural Networks
  • Higher Order Neural Networks for Business and Accounting: City Manager Compensation and Hybrid Higher Order Neural Structure for Pattern Recognition
  • Time Series Forecasting Via a Higher Order Neural Network Trained with the Extended Kalman Filter for Smart Grid Applications

Reviews and Testimonials

Earlier volumes on artificial higher order neural networks looked at applications in economics and business (2009) and computer science and engineering (2010). Here computer and information scientists, most from Mexico but others from around the world, introduce the networks to people working in modeling and simulation as an open-box artificial neural network tool, rather than traditional artificial neural networks. Their topics include modeling combinatorial optimization problems, artificial polynomial and trigonometric higher order neural network group models, modeling and simulating alternative energy generation processes, the cooperative control of unknown networked Lagrange systems, the theory and implementation of symbolic function network, and city manager compensation and performance.
