Degree of approximation by periodic neural networks

Nahmwoo Hahm, Bum Il Hong


We investigate an approximation order of a continuous 2$\pi$-periodic function by periodic neural networks. By using the De La Valle ́e Poussin sum and the modulus of continuity, we obtain a degree of approximation by periodic neural networks.
