An important feature of radial basis function neural networks is the existence of a fast, linear learning algorithm in a network capable of representing complex non-linear mappings. Satisfactory generalisation in these networks requires that the network mapping be sufficiently smooth. It is shown that a modification to the error function allows smoothing to be introduced without significantly affecting the speed of training. A simple example is used to demonstrate the resulting improvement in the generalisation properties of the network.
