Multi-Valued Neuron MVN was proposed forpattern classification. It operates with complex-valued inputs, outputs, andweights, and its learning algorithm is based on error-correcting rule. Theactivation function of MVN is not differentiable. Therefore, we can not applybackpropagation when constructing multilayer structures. In this paper, we proposea new neuron model, MVN-sig, to simulate the mechanism of MVN withdifferentiable activation function. We expect MVN-sig to achieve higherperformance than MVN. We run several classification benchmark datasets to comparethe performance of MVN-sig with that of MVN. The experimental results show agood potential to develop a multilayer networks based on MVN-sig.
