Norikazu Takahashi, Tetsuo Nishi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A method of synthesis of mutually coupled neural networks possessing many equilibrium points whose basins of the attraction are of almost the same size is given. The connection matrix of the network is a cyclic matrix with all diagonal elements vanishing.
