Nonlinear parameter estimation in classification problems

Blackmore, Kim Louise


A nonlinear generalisation of the perceptron learning algorithm is presented and analysed. The new algorithm is designed for learning nonlinearly parametrised decision regions. It is shown that this algorithm can be viewed as a stepwise gradient descent of a certain cost function. Averaging theory is used to describe the behaviour of the algorithm, and in the process conditions guaranteeing convergence of the algorithm are established. These conditions are hard to test, so some simpler...[Show more]
