Abstract

Hopfield neural networks comprise a rich and varied realm of the overall field of artificial neural networks. Applications can be found in many areas of engineering. Continuing investigation into the theoretical and practical considerations governing the convergence properties of the networks provides a firm foundation for the use of Hopfield models and their extension to more generalized settings. Work continues on differences in performance that may occur when the networks are implemented with fully parallel (asynchronous) updating of the activations.
