Neural Network Toolbox Applications

It would be impossible to cover the total range of applications for which neural networks have provided outstanding solutions. The remaining sections of this topic describe only a few of the applications in function fitting, pattern recognition, clustering, and time series analysis. The following table provides an idea of the diversity of applications for which neural networks provide state-of-the-art solutions.
