About the Editor

Russell C. Eberhart


@qu:An exposition on the practical applications of neural networks has been reatly needed. I believe that this book fulfills that need in an extremely fine fashion....You really don't need a supercomputer, a million dollars, and an interdisciplinary team of experts to put neural networks to work. All you need is a personal computer and this book.
@source:--Bernard Widrow
@qu:Neural Network PC Tools ushers in a new era both for artificial neural networks (ANNS) and ANN books...Neural Network PC Tools is a worthwhile book for anyone who wants to use the PC for simulating neural networks.
@qu:Another fine book for developers is Neural Network PC Tools: A Practical Guide (San Diego, Calif.: Academic Press, 1990) edited by Russell Eberhart and Roy Dobbins. . . . I like the editors' and authors' common sense, personal, and down-to-development approach to the topics.
