The aim of this paper is to presents a parallel processor technique for solving eigenvalue problem for ordinary differential equations using artificial neural networks. The proposed network is trained by back propagation with different training algorithms quasi-Newton, Levenberg-Marquardt, and Bayesian Regulation. The next objective of this paper was to compare the performance of aforementioned algorithms with regard to predicting ability.
