AI::NNFlex::Mathlib - miscellaneous mathematical functions for the AI::NNFlex NN package
The AI::NNFlex::Mathlib package contains activation and error functions. At present there are the following:
If you want to implement your own activation/error functions, you can add them to this module. All activation functions to be used by certain types of net (like Backprop) require an additional function <function name>_slope, which returns the 1st order derivative of the function.
This rule doesn't apply to all network types. Hopfield for example requires no slope calculation.
v1.2 includes hopfield_threshold
