By Ulf Grenander

This monograph studies a inspiration scan with a mathematical constitution meant to demonstrate the workings of a brain. It offers a mathematical thought of human proposal according to trend concept with a graph-based method of pondering. the strategy illustrated and produced via large laptop simulations is expounded to neural networks. dependent as a rule on introspection, it's speculative instead of empirical such that it differs significantly in angle from the normal knowledge of present cognitive science.
