Hmm... an algoritm for neural networks. That's not exactly my application, and from the looks of it it will need to be greatly simplified for my program, but maybe I can use it.


It's a competitive neural network model, nothing to do with multi-layered perceptrons. Your application can be seen as a self organizing map,
and is very close to a Kohonen Map. The difference is that you try to build the topology during the learning process, the topology isn't static, that's why I suggested to have a look on Growing Neural Gas. It will explain : how to link/unlink nodes and how to create/destroy nodes.

Out of curiosity, is that your master thesis that you linked to?

No it is not.
