Li Dongsheng Wang Wei(Seismological Bureau of Anhui Province)Huang Bingshu( Material Institute of Shanghai)
The principle and method of artificial neural network are briefly summarized in this paper, and the data, which were obtained form the Annual Report for Discussion on Earthquake Tendency in China ( 1986-1992) .are used to train and evaluate the neural network. The results show that network has good quality for pattern recognition, and is suitable for earthquake prediction to a certain extent. The effect of some important parameters of the network on the behavior of the network is also discussed in detail.
