Here is my code to implement the learning of my neural network using the backpropagation learning. The algorithms is stable but I don't learn correctly the output. Do you see anything wrong in my learning process?

//### Parameter ###
#define Nb_entry 2
#define coeff_app 0.01 
#define par_momentum 0.8 
#define par_nb_test 0.2
#define para_tolerence 0.05
#define para_stop_learning 1000

Here are my learning functions

void fonction_neuron(double * input, Neuron * neuron_info)
    int i=0; // loop variable
    double net=0;

    // Computation of the net value type: net = w[0]*bias + sum(w[i]*imp[i])
    net=(*neuron_info).weight[0]; //bias = 1
    for(i=1;i<(*neuron_info).nb_input;i++) net+=(*neuron_info).weight[i]*input[i];


void fonction_network(Neuron N_network[][10], int nb_layer, int *nb_neuron_per_layer,double *input)
    int i,j; //loop variable
    double previous_layer_output[10]={0};

    //Propagation of the signal into the neural network
        if(i!=0) for(j=0;j<nb_neuron_per_layer[i-1];j++) 
            previous_layer_output[j]=N_network[i-1][j].output;//save previous layer output

            //printf(" i=%d j=%d \n", i,j);
            N_network[i][j].old_output=N_network[i][j].output; //save previous value
            if(i==0)fonction_neuron(input, &(N_network[i][j])); //first layer               
            else fonction_neuron(previous_layer_output, &(N_network[i][j])); //other layer using the previous layer output
  • $\begingroup$ regarding this line: double net=0; the posted code exhibits several details that. individually, might not matter, but do indicate problems. For instance, a literal value being assigned to a double. The literal value is expected to contain a decimal point. so the line should be: double net=0.0; $\endgroup$ Dec 22 '15 at 17:50
  • $\begingroup$ for readability by us humans, strongly suggest following the axiom: only one statement per line and (at most) one variable declaration per statement. $\endgroup$ Dec 22 '15 at 17:57
  • $\begingroup$ for those of us that are very good with 'C' but do not know the Neural network with multiple layer: learning function algorithm, could you post a link to that algorithm. $\endgroup$ Dec 22 '15 at 18:02

Here are some questions to help with the implementation of the algorithm:

1- You did the sum, but where/what is the activation function (sigmoid, hyperbolic tangent, Gaussian, etc.)?

2- Is multilayer? How did you forward? Did you use the sum along with activation of each neuron past for the other layers?

3- Have you stored the derivatives of activations to the backpropagation?

4- Will you use the traditional backpropagation algorithm or genetic algorithm to adjust the network weights?

5- If you choose the sigmoid and backpropagation, here is an example algorithm (this algorithm the derivative of the sigmoid is already calculated $O_{j}$ $(1-O_{j})$.
