Neural Network Parallel Computing
By Yoshiyasu Takefuji, Case Western Reserve University, USA
1992 ISBN 0-7923-9190-X Cloth 240 pages $65.00
Neural Network Parallel Computing is the first book and the only single
book available for the professional on neural network computing for
optimization problems. This introductory book is for experts in a
variety of areas including parallel computing, neural network computing,
computer science, communications, graph theory, computer aided design
for VLSI circuits, molecular biology, management science, and operations
research, as well as for the novice in these areas.
Neural Network Parallel Computing provides real applications and
real-world examples. The computational power of neural network computing
is demonstrated by solving numerous problems such as N-queen, crossbar
switch scheduling, four-coloring and k-colorability, graph planarization
and channel routing, RNA secondary structure prediction, knight's tour,
spare allocation, sorting and searching, and tiling.
Neural Network Parallel Computing presents a major breakthrough in
science as well as a variety of engineering fields. This book is an
excellent reference for researchers in all areas covered in this book.
This text may also be used as a senior or graduate level course on the
topic.
