This paper is concerned with learning and optimization of different basis function networks in the aspect of structure adaptation and parameter tuning. Basis function networks include the Volterra polynomial, Gaussian radial, B-spline, fuzzy, recurrent fuzzy, and local Gaussian basis function networks. Based on creation and evolution of the type constrained sparse tree, a unified framework is constructed, in which structure adaptation and parameter adjustment of different basis function networks are addressed using a hybrid learning algorithm combining a modified probabilistic incremental program evolution (MPIPE) and random search algorithm. Simulation results for the identification of nonlinear systems show the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method.
