A NUMERICAL EXAMPLE AND A RECOGNITION EXPERIMENT Several other aspects must be investigated before the nonlinear algorithm derived in Section III can be applied to numerical calculations or physical experiments. For example, one must have the means of computing the error covariance K at each stage of the n learning process. In addition, a proper selection of the threshold e is also important for a desirable learning performance.
