This is the second order quasi- newton optimizer - it is generally faster and it generates usually better results. Read the following for `scipy.optimize.fmin_tnc` documentation: http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.optimize.fmin_tnc.html -- Marek ```
 [Ffnet-users] about the ffnet.train_tnc function From: Sheila the angel - 2012-09-10 16:57:11 Attachments: Message as HTML ```Hello ffnet-users, I am new to ANN and ffnet. I would like to know what do the function ffnet.train_tnc is for. In the document other training function have description like ffnet.train_momentum(input, target[, eta, ...]) Simple backpropagation training with momentum. but there is no description for ffnet.train_tnc ?? Thanks -- Sheila ```
