A model for a large network with an unidirectional linear respone (ULR) is proposed in this letter. This deterministic system has powerful computing properties in very close correspondence with earlier stochastic model based on McCulloch-Pitts neurons and graded neuron model based on sigmoid input-output relation. The exclusive OR problems and other digital computation properties of the earlier models also are present in the ULR model. Furthermore, many analog and continuous signal processing can also be performed using the simple ULR neural network. Several examples of the ULR neural networks for analog and continuous signal processing are presented and show extemely promising results in terms of performance, density and potential for analog and continuous signal processing. An algorithm for the ULR neural network is also developed and used to train the ULR network for many digital and analog as well as continuous problems successfully.
