This section will describe the use of the three ART models ART1, ART2 and ARTMAP, as they are implemented in SNNS. It will not give detailed information on the Adaptive Resonance Theory. You should already know the theory to be able to understand this chapter. For the theory the following literature is recommended:
There will be one subsection for each of the three models and one subsection describing the required topologies of the networks when using the ART learning-, update- or initialization-functions. These topologies are rather complex. For this reason the network creation tool BigNet has been extended. It now offers an easy way to create ART1, ART2 and ARTMAP networks according to your requirements. For a detailed explanation of the respective features of BigNet see chapter .
