#### Threads in Neural Network in Train/Validation/Test

```Dear All,
I am using MATLAB R2009a. I have a different answer for train/validation/test from two different method:

1) I Use:
[net tr] = train(net,trainV.P,trainV.T,[],[],valV,testV);

to train the network,   and simulate the different train/validation/test result as:

normTrainOutput=sim(net,trainV.P,[],[],trainV.T);
normValidateOutput=sim(net,valV.P,[],[],valV.T);
normTestOutput=sim(net,testV.P,[],[],testV.T);

and then i obtained MSE for training validation and test as:

MSETrain=tr.perf(end);
MSEValidate=tr.vperf(end);
MSETest=tr.tperf(end);

And from them finally R2 square value as:

R2Train=1-NMSETrain
R2Validate=1-NMSEValidate
R2Test=1-NMSETest

And the result i obtained directly from MSEtrain1=mse(normTrainOutput - tn(:XX)), that starts from training interval period i defined. And so on validation and test. Why these two values MSETrain1 and MSETrain differ?

2) I have R2 Train = 0.7738, R2 Validate = 0.7934 and R2 Test = 0.7926. And from the linear regression plot i obtain R train = 0.89584, R validate = 0.81805 and R Test = 0.92432. Does it mean the R2 value of neural network is worst than linear regression model? OR the result i obtained during training = 0.89584 from regression is quite good.

3) Every times i simulate my network, my R2 values sometimes good and sometimes even worst  -ve. How to make it constant, if i assume i get 27 epochs,  hidden neurons  =18 the best R2 value?

Thank You.
```

Using norm in the output names is confusing because norm has a special meaning
(help/doc norm)

I think if tr.stop indicates validation minimum stopping you should
replace end with end- tr.max_fail or tr.best_epoch.

If tr.stop indicates validation minimum stopping, then the last max_fail epochs should not be included. Find tr.best_epoch ,tr.best_perf,  etc

Does it mean the R2 value of neural network is worst than linear regression model? OR the result i obtained during training = 0.89584 from regression is quite good.

If you had chosen the val minimum epoch, I would have expected

R = sqrt( R^2 )

You get different values because of the random data division and random weight initialization. If you intialize the random number generator to the same state (e.g.,
rng(4151941) ) before data division and weight initialization, you will reproduce runs.

I usually use a double loop over numH candidate values for H and Ntrials weight initialization runs to get five Ntrials X numH sized matrices for numepochs, R2trn,
R2trna, R2val and R2tst.

Neural network: Retrieve training, validation, testing dataset
Hi there, Two questions: 1. I'm using newff and train to create a neural network (LM algorithm). I need to retrieve the training, validation and testing dataset I'm using after the training (I'm using the default 60,20,20 division of the input dataset). I'could obtain those using dividerand in the input dataset (and get a train, val, test input dataset) and then using the indices with divideind to get the corresponding target datasets. But, then, how to use those datasets when calling "train"? Or when doing: [trainP2,valP2,testP2,trainInd2,valInd2,testInd2] ...

Training, testing and validating data set in Neural Network
Hi everybody, I'm working with Neural Network toolbox and I had a doubt about how to define the training, testing and validating data set.

And also, how many tests should i consider for a neural network of 1 hidden layer, with 21 neurons in this layer, 10 in the input and just 1 in the output? is there any way to compute the total number of tests??

Neural Network Architecture with MATLAB Neural Network Toolbox
Dear neural network experts, I would like to make a neural network model for a situation when some of the input variables can interact, while others don't have any interactions. This information is based on logical considerations and I have to include it into the architecture of the net. For example, I have 3 different groups of input variables. Within each groups the variables are disjunct (i.e. no interaction). Variables of different groups may interact. This would result in either - restrictions to some weights of a network consisting of completely inter-linked neurons (i.e. some weight...

Neural network train problem with validation
i'm Working on modeling very high dimensional data with very few observation, and of course there's no way to obtain a good model in prediction, but i'd like to implement a new approach for assessing neural netowork but i really need a way not to divide the set of dat in training - validation -test, but only training and use the test set for detect the best network in prediction. how can i set the parameter in newff for exclude the validation set? i tried with: net.divideParam.trainRatio = 0.8; net.divideParam.testRatio = 0.2; but it doesn't work. I also split randomly my initial data set in 2 different sets of 80% of data for training and 20% for test as follows: Nexp = 96; Npos = 4 Domains=95 perccamp=20; Gen1 = ceil(rand(Nexp,Npos)*Domains); numtest =round((Nexp*perccamp)./100); datiinput=randperm(96); test= Gen1(datiinput(1:numtest),:); train = Gen1(datiinput(numtest+1:Nexp),:); trainp= train(:,1:Npos*Domains) traint=train(:,Npos*Domains+1) testp=test(:,1:Npos*Domains) testt=test(:,Npos*Domains+1) net= newff(p',t',nn); but i don't know how to train the net with only the testset Any suggestions?

Neural Network Validation: Train vs Sim output puzzle
