Neural Networks with Java

Diploma thesis of Jochen Fröhlich

Fachhochschule Regensburg, Department of Computer Science

Supervised by Prof. Jürgen Sauer

"Neural Net Components in an Object Oriented Class Structure"

This diploma thesis features a Java class framework for the implementation of neural networks. A sample applet uses the classes to display a 3D animated Kohonen Feature Map that solves the obligatory Travelling Salesman Problem.


You are free to use the provided Java class files in your own neural network applications. Please see a documentation of the classes' methods in the "Using the Classes" section.


The classes are all written in Java (JDK Version 1.0.2) and contain components of the Backpropagation Net and the Kohonen Feature Map neural network types.
