Paper Abstract

In this paper, we consider the use of optical neural networks to approach solutions of optimization problems. A computer neural simulation of the Traveling Salesman optimization Problem is presented. An optical system designed to achieve this task, using a synaptic matrix composed of NxN computer-generated holograms is described. We discuss how these systems could be extended for use in future machines.
