...calculate the robustness of a selected template set
A tool to calculate relative and absolute robustness of the actually
used template set is included in this simulator. It is restricted
to bipolar tasks, where input, initial state, and steady state output
Definition of robustness:
The robustness of a template set is a measure
which quantifies the degree by which a template set can be altered while
still producing the desired output.
For more background information about this subject see  in the bibliography section.
Note that the robustness analysis implemented here is restricted to bipolar
CNNs with piece-wise linear output function.
If you want to verify the results of the calculation, just enter the calculated
relative robustness into the perturbation value field and perturb the template
set (described in How to...perturb template
set values). The perturbed template set will still operate correctly,
as you will see.
To calculate relative and absolute robustness of a template set, change
to the perturbation & robustness section using the simulator
Press the "calculate" button. Relative and absolute robustness of
the template set are displayed in the two fields below.
