About this book

This book is devoted to an analysis of general weakly connected neural networks (WCNNs) that can be written in the form (0.1) m Here, each Xi E IR is a vector that summarizes all physiological attributes of the ith neuron, n is the number of neurons, Ii describes the dynam­ ics of the ith neuron, and gi describes the interactions between neurons. The small parameter € indicates the strength of connections between the neurons. Weakly connected systems have attracted much attention since the sec­ ond half of seventeenth century, when Christian Huygens noticed that a pair of pendulum clocks synchronize when they are attached to a light­ weight beam instead of a wall. The pair of clocks is among the first weakly connected systems to have been studied. Systems of the form (0.1) arise in formal perturbation theories developed by Poincare, Liapunov and Malkin, and in averaging theories developed by Bogoliubov and Mitropolsky.

Reviews

From the reviews:


"...After the introduction, written according to the authors in ordinary language, and well readable even for laymen, follows a nicely written Chapter 2 on bifurcations in neuron dynamics which must be read. Here also spiking and bursting phenomena are clearly described. Chapter 3 contains a short sketch of nonhyperbolic (when the Jacobian matrix of (1) has at least one eigenvalue with zero real part) neural networks. The remaining part of the book is mainly devoted to canonical models (Chapter 4), their derivation (Chapters 6--9), and their analysis (Chapters 10--12). The term canonical model is not precisely defined here. The authors say that a model is canonical if there is a continuous change of variables that transforms any other model from a given class into this one. As the method of deriving the canonical models, the authors exploit the normal form theory. Canonical models treated in the book have only restricted value: They provide information about local behavior of (1) when there is an exponentially stable limit cycle but they say nothing about global behavior of (1), including the transients. The last Chapter 13 describes the relationship between synaptic organizations and dynamical properties of networks of neural oscillators. In other words, the problem of learning and memorization of phase information in the weakly connected network of oscillators corresponding to multiple Andronov-Hopf bifurcation is treated analytically.

Surprisingly the book ends without any conclusions. Also there are no appendices to the book. The references are representative and sufficiently cover the problematics treated in the book."  (Ladislav Andrey, Mathematical Reviews)
