Abstract——The successful applications of flexible neural networks (FNNs) notwithstanding, nothing was rigorously known about them until recently that we examined them in a theoretical framework. Following those works, two models of FNN-based associative memories (AMs) are introduced and studied from the behavioral standpoint, i.e., model following or continuous trajectory learning. A nonlinearly parameterized (NLP) adaptive control is proposed as the training scheme. The solution contains a time-varying designer-specified vector parameter, and thus some degrees of freedom, which determines the control input (or the teaching signal) and the rate of adaptation (or learning). Its global stability and convergence are proven.
