This paper describes evolutionary programming, a systematic multi- agent stochastic search technique, used to generate recurrent perceptrons Nonlinear IIR filters. A hybrid optimization scheme is proposed that embeds a single-agent stochastic search technique, the method of Solis and Wets, into the evolutionary programming paradigm. The proposed hybrid optimization approach is further augmented by blending randomly selected parent vectors to create additional offspring. The first part of this work investigates the performance of the suggested hybrid stochastic search method. After demonstration on the Bohachevsky and Rosenbrock response surfaces, the hybrid stochastic optimization approach is applied in determining both the model order and the coefficients of recurrent perceptron time-series models. An information criterion is used to evaluate each recurrent perceptron structure as a candidate solution. It is speculated that the stochastic training method implemented in this study for training recurrent perceptrons can be used to train perceptron networks that have radically recurrent architectures.
