Gradient-Based Learning Algorithms for Recurrent Networks and Their Computational Complexity

INTRODUCTION Learning in Recurrent Networks Connectionist networks having feedback connections are interesting for a number of reasons. Biological neural networks are highly recurrently connected, and many authors have studied recurrent network models of various types of perceptual and memory processes. The general property making such networks interesting and potentially useful is that they manifest highly nonlinear dynamical behavior. One such type of dynamical behavior that has received much attention is that of settling to a fixed stable state, but probably of greater importance both biologically and from an engineering viewpoint are time-varying behaviors.
