# Optimal hidden nodes number

Hello everybody,

In order to determine optimal hidden neurons, Trial and error algorithm has been used (trial = 10, 10 < H < 100, dH = 100). I get the table on top but i can not determine the optimal hidden neurons. The table contains (Trials, Hidden neurons, test_mse, train_mse, val_mse, test_R, train_R, val_R)

I have posted hundreds of examples in both the NEWSGROUP (comp.soft-sys.matlab) and ANSWERS that determine the optimal number of hidden nodes defined by

`1. One Hidden Layer (ALWAYS SUFFICIENT!!!) 2. Minimum Number of Hidden Nodes subject to my      practicality constraint    TRAINING SUBSET RSQUARE >= 0.99     i.e.    99% of the training subset target variance is    successfully modeled by the net.    Equivalently    TRAINING SUBSET MSE <= 0.01*TRAINING SUBSET VARIANCE 3. COMMENTS & CAVEATS    a. The training subset must be a good representative of validation and test data    b. A smaller number of hidden nodes can often be obtained by using multiple hidden layers    c. The MSE minimization technique used for regression and curvefitting (e.g., via FITNET)is also successful for classification and pattern recognition (e.g., via PATTERNNET) where the minimization function is cross-entropy and the desired result is minimal error rate.`
