dc.description.abstractNeural networks have been applied to a number of problems over the past few years. One of the emerging applications of neural networks is adaptive communication channel equalisation. This area of research has become prominent due to the reformulation of the equalisation problem as a classification problem. Viewing equalisation as a classification problem allows researchers to apply the knowledge gained from other fields to equalisation. A wide variety of neural network structures have been suggested to equalise communication channels. Each structure may in turn have a number of different possible algorithms to train the equaliser. A neural network is essentially a non-linear classifier; in general a neural network is able to classify data by employing a non-linear function. The primary subject of this dissertation is the comparative performance of neural networks employing non-localised basis (non-linear) functions (Multi-layer Perceptron) versus those employing localised basis functions (Radial Basis Function Network).en_ZA
