The aim is to present an introduction to, and an overview of, the present state of neural network research and development, with an emphasis on control systems application studies. The book is useful to a range of levels of reader. The earlier chapters introduce the more popular networks and the fundamental control principles, these are followed by a series of application studies, most of which are industrially based, and the book concludes with a consideration of some recent research.
