About this title:
Synopsis:

This book provides the first accessible introduction to neural network analysis as a methodological strategy for social scientists. The author details numerous studies and examples which illustrate the advantages of neural network analysis over other quantitative and modeling methods in widespread use. Methods are presented in an accessible style for readers who do not have a background in computer science. The book provides a history of neural network methods, a substantial review of the literature, detailed applications, coverage of the most common alternative models and examples of two leading software packages for neural network analysis.


About the Author:
Hervé Abdi was born in France where he grew up. He received an M.S. in Psychology from the University of Franche-Comté (France) in 1975, an M.S.

He was twice a Fulbright scholar. He has been also a visiting scientist or professor in in the Rotman Institute (Toronto University), in Brown University, and in the Universities of Chuo (Japan), Dijon (France), Geneva (Switzerland), Nice Sophia Antipolis (France), and Paris 13 (France). His recent work is concerned with face and person perception, odor perception, and with computational modeling of these processes. He is also developing statistical techniques to analyze the structure of large data sets as found, for example, in brain imaging and sensory evaluation (e.g., principal component analysis, correspondence analysis, PLS-Regression, STATIS, DISTATIS, discriminant correspondence analysis, multiple factor analysis, multi-table analysis, additive tree representations,...). In the past decade, he has published over 80 papers (plus 5 books and 3 edited volumes) on these topics. He teaches or has taught classes in cognition, computational modeling, experimental design, multivariate statistics, and the analysis of brain imaging data.

Neural networks, adaptive statistical models based on an analogy with the structure of the brain, can be used to estimate the parameters of some population using one (or a few) exemplars at a time. This book introduces readers to the basic models of neural networks and compares and contrasts these models using other statistical models. Through the use of examples that can be computed by hand or with a simple calculator, the authors describe and explain the various models. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780761914402
