Paper Abstract

Influence of two new nonlinearity functions on Perceptron performance is studied. The two new functions under consideration are Gaussian and sinusoid functions. The new functions create multithreshold Perceptions capable of handling both binary and analog inputs. A computer program has been developed to simulate behavior of a network utilizing either of the two modified Perceptrons. Both XOR and Parity Check problems were solved using a single-layer network utilizing these modified Perceptions. Based on the results obtained from the simulation the modified Perceptions are capable of solving problems (such as XOR) that can not be solved using a single-layer of the classical Perceptron. Also networks utilizing these modified Perceptions require fewer number of iterations to converge to a solution than that of a multi-layer network of classical Perceptions using back propagation. In addition the results show that Sinusoidal Perceptronperforms better than Gaussian Perception. 1.
