Neural networks are increasingly popular in geophysics.\ud Because they are universal approximators, these\ud tools can approximate any continuous function with an\ud arbitrary precision. Hence, they may yield important\ud contributions to finding solutions to a variety of geophysical applications.\ud However, knowledge of many methods and techniques\ud recently developed to increase the performance\ud and to facilitate the use of neural networks does not seem\ud to be widespread in the geophysical community. Therefore,\ud the power of these tools has not yet been explored to\ud their full extent. In this paper, techniques are described\ud for faster training, better overall performance, i.e., generalization,and the automatic estimation of network size\ud and architecture
