This textbook teaches students how to carefully use a powerful set of
mathematical tools for analyzing and designing a wide variety of
NONLINEAR HIGH-DIMENSIONAL Artificial Neural Network (ANN) systems.

Chapter 1: ANN systems with Neuroscience, Psychology, Engineering Applications
Chapter 2: Specific ANN system architectures; classification/learning paradigms
Chapter 3: LaSalle's Invariant Set Theorem for behavioral analysis of ANNs
Chapter 4: Stochastic Approximation Theorem for behavioral analysis of ANNs
Chapter 5: Nonlinear Optimization Theory for ANN system design
Chapters 6,7: Bayesian Decision Theory and Markov Random Fields for the
design of "rational" ANN classification/learning objective functions.
Chapter 8: Confidence intervals for an ANN system's predictions. Statistical
tests for: (i) pruning/adding units, and (ii) model selection.
Solutions: Solutions to over 100 ANN system analysis and design problems
