We report on results concerning the capabilities of gaussian radial basis function networks in the setting of inner product spaces that need not be finite dimensional. Specifically, we show that important indexed families of functionals can be uniformly approximated, with the approximation uniform also with respect to the index. Applications are described concerning the classification of signals and the synthesis of reconfigurable classifiers.
This paper concerns conditions for the approximation of functions in certain general spaces using radial-basis-function networks. It has been shown in recent papers that certain classes of radial-basis-function networks are broad enough for universal approximation. In this paper these results are considerably extended and sharpened.
