Abstract: We attempt to quantify the significance of increasing the number of neurons in the hidden layer of a feedforward neural network architecture using the singular value decomposition (SVD). Through this, we extend some well-known properties of the SVD in evaluating the generalizability of single hidden layer feedforward networks (SLFNs) with respect to the number of hidden neurons. The generalization capability of the SLFN is measured by the degree of linear independency of the patterns in hidden layer space, which can be indirectly quantified from the singular values obtained from the SVD, in a post-learning step. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2006.
