9.9.7 Summary

The distributed optimization [Battiti:89a;89e] software was developed by Roberto Battiti, modifying a back-propagation program written by Steve Otto. Fox and Williams inspired our first investigations into the optimization  literature (Shanno's conjugate gradient  [Shanno:78a] is used in [Williams:87b]).
