Summary In this paper, we review the procedures for constructing feedforward neural networks in regression problems. While standard back-propagation performs gradient descent only in the weight space of a network with fixed topology, constructive procedures start with a small network and then grow additional hidden units and weights until a satisfactory solution is found. The constructive procedures are categorized according to the resultant network architecture and the learning algorithm for the network weights.
