Publisher: arXiv 2002
Number of pages: 85
We all are fascinated by the phenomena of intelligent behavior, as generated both by our own brains and by the brains of other animals. As physicists we would like to understand if there are some general principles that govern the structure and dynamics of the neural circuits that underlie these phenomena.

A general theory of artificial neural nets. The book starts with the simple nets, and shows how the models change when more general computing elements and net topologies are introduced. Suitable as a basis for university courses in neurocomputing.

These notes have three main objectives: to present the major concepts of computational neuroscience, to present the basic mathematics that underlies these concepts, and to give the reader some idea of common approaches taken by neuroscientists.

This text applies the concepts of complexity science to provide an explanation of all aspects of human creativity. The book describes the model that integrates ideas from computer science, mathematics, neurobiology, philosophy, and psychology.
