A Hopfield neural network with multi-compartmental activation

The Hopfield network is a form of recurrent artificial neural network. To satisfy demands of artificial neural networks and brain activity, the networks are needed to be modified in different ways. Accordingly, it is the first time that, in our paper, a Hopfield neural network with piecewise constant argument of generalized type and constant delay is considered. To insert both types of the arguments, a multi-compartmental activation function is utilized. For the analysis of the problem, we have applied the results for newly developed differential equations with piecewise constant argument of generalized type beside methods for differential equations and functional differential equations. In the paper, we obtained sufficient conditions for the existence of an equilibrium as well as its global exponential stability. The main instruments of investigation are Lyapunov functionals and linear matrix inequality method. Two examples with simulations are given to illustrate our solutions as well as global exponential stability.


Ability to forecast unsteady aerodynamic forces of flapping airfoils by artificial neural network
Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-05-01)
The ability of artificial neural networks (ANN) to model the unsteady aerodynamic force coefficients of flapping motion kinematics has been studied. A neural networks model was developed based on multi-layer perception (MLP) networks and the Levenberg-Marquardt optimization algorithm. The flapping kinematics data were divided into two groups for the training and the prediction test of the ANN model. The training phase led to a very satisfactory calibration of the ANN model. The attempt to predict aerodynami...
Nuclear Fission-Nuclear Fusion algorithm for global optimization: a modified Big Bang-Big Crunch algorithm
YALÇIN, YAĞIZER; Pekcan, Onur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-04-01)
This study introduces a derivative of the well-known optimization algorithm, Big Bang-Big Crunch (BB-BC), named Nuclear Fission-Nuclear Fusion-based BB-BC, simply referred to as N2F. Broadly preferred in the engineering optimization community, BB-BC provides accurate solutions with reasonably fast convergence rates for many engineering problems. Regardless, the algorithm often suffers from stagnation issues. More specifically, for some problems, BB-BC either converges prematurely or exploits the promising r...

The integration of logic rules and relational databases has recently emerged as an important technique for developing knowledge management systems. An important class of logic rules utilized by these systems is the so-called transitive closure rules, the processing of which requires the computation of the transitive closure of database relations referenced by these rules. This article presents a new algorithm suitable for computing the transitive closure of very large database relations. This algorithm proc...
AI for dynamic packet size optimization of batteryless IoT nodes: a case study for wireless body area sensor networks
Tabrizi, Hamed Osouli; Al-Turjman, Fadi (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-10-01)
Packet size optimization, with the purpose of minimizing the wireless packet transmission energy consumption, is crucial for the energy efficiency of the Internet of Things nodes. Meanwhile, energy scavenging from ambient energy sources has gained a significant attraction to avoid battery issues as the number of nodes increasingly grows. Packet size optimization algorithms have so far been proposed for battery-powered networks that have limited total energy with continuous power availability to prolong thei...
Attraction of Li-Yorke chaos by retarded SICNNs
Akhmet, Marat (Elsevier BV, 2015-01-05)
In the present study, dynamics of retarded shunting inhibitory cellular neural networks (SICNNs) is investigated with Li-Yorke chaotic external inputs and outputs. Within the scope of our results, we prove the presence of generalized synchronization in coupled retarded SICNNs, and confirm it by means of the auxiliary system approach. We have obtained more than just synchronization, as it is proved that the Li-yorke chaos is extended with its ingredients, proximality and frequent separation, which have not b...
