Quickprop (` MSTJN(5)`=3), which estimates the updating step
through eq. (), has two learning parameters and
two control parameters. These are the ``learning rate'' ` PARJN(1)`
(), the sigmoid-prime addition ` PARJN(23)` (),
the maximum growth factor ` PARJN(21)` and the maximum weight
magnitude ` PARJN(22)`. The latter is quite
unimportant. Default values recommended in [9] for the other
three parameters are; ` PARJN(1)` of order unity, ` PARJN(23)`= 0.1
and ` PARJN(21)` = 1.75. We have not done extensive tests to to
determine the problem dependence of these parameters.

It is recommended to run QP using a small weight decay (` PARJN(5)`).
