Abstract: The paper focuses on discussing how to train and optimize the radial basis probabilistic neural network (RBPNN) structure by Recursive Orthogonal Least Squares Algorithms (ROLSA) combined with Micro-Genetic Algorithms (μ-GA). First, the previous ROLSA, used for optimally selecting the hidden centers of the RBPNN, was improved in two aspects, i.e., adopting new double error criterions and new stop condition. Secondly, the micro-genetic algorithm, used for optimizing the controlling parameter of kernel function, was incorporated in the improved ROLSA in order that the structure of RBPNN can be entirely optimized. Finally, to demonstrate the power of our approach, two examples, i.e., both two spirals classification problem and IRIS classification problem, were employed to validate the performance of the classification. The experimental result showed that, for the two spirals problem the structure of the RBPNN with 200 initial hidden centers was considerably compressed into the one with 30 hidden centers, and for the IRIS classification problem only 9 hidden centers among 75 initial hidden centers were selected for the optimized RBPNN structure. Whereas for the Radial Basis Function Neural Network (RBFNN), under the same condition, for the two spirals problem, there were still 46 hidden centers left, and for the IRIS problem 15 hidden centers were selected into the optimal structure of the RBFNN. Moreover, the experimental results also illustrated that the generalization performance of the optimized RBPNN for the two examples was obviously better than the one of the optimized RBFNN.
