Properties of RBF RBF is a supervised training model. The 1st layer used the K-means clustering algorithm todetermine the K nodes. The activation function of the 2nd layer was linear. f(s)=s. f ’(s)=1. The 2ndlayer used the Widrow-Hoff learning rule.

Experiments: on simulated well log data In the simulation, there are 31 well logs. Professor Shenat University of Houston worked on theoretical calculation. Each well log has the apparent conductivity (Ca) as the input, and the true formation conductivity (Ct) as the desired output. Well logs #1~#25 are for training. Well logs #26~#31 are for testing.
Simulated well log data: examples Simulated well log data #7
Cut 200 records into 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 40, 50, 100, and 200 data, segment by segment, to test the best input data length to RBF model.
For inversion, the output data length is equal to the input data length in the RBF model.
In testing, input n data to the RBF model to get the n output data, then input n data of the next segment to get the next n output data, repeatedly.
Example of input data lengthat well log #13 If each segment (pattern vector) has 10 data, 200 records of each well log are cut into 20 segments (pattern vectors).

Optimal cluster number of training patternsExample: for input data length 10 PFS vs. K. For input N=10, the optimal cluster number K is 27.
Optimal cluster number of training patterns in 10 cases Set up 10 two-layer RBF models. Compare the testing errors of 10 models to select the optimal RBF model.

Experiment: Training in modified three-layer RBF.Hidden node number?
Determine the number of hidden nodes in the 2-layer perceptron
On hidden nodes for neural nets (Mirchandani and Cao,1989)
It divides space to maximum M regions when input space is d dimensions and there are H hidden nodes. 𝑀𝐻,𝑑=𝑘=0𝑑𝐶𝐻,𝑘=𝐶𝐻,0+𝐶𝐻,1+⋯+𝐶𝐻,𝑑 𝐶𝐻, 𝑘=0 if 𝐻<𝑘 T: number of training patterns. Each pattern is in one region. From T ≈ M, we can determine H hidden nodes.
10-27-10 2-layer RBF gets the smallest error in testing. We extend it to 10-27-H-10 in the 3-layer RBF. H=?
For original 10 inputs, the number of training patterns is 500. T=500.
For a 27-H-10 two-layer perceptron, the number of input nodes is 27.
When d=27, H=9, 𝑀𝐻,𝑑=𝑀9,27=𝐶9,0+𝐶9,1+…+𝐶9,9 =29=512 maximum regions 𝑀=512 ≈ 𝑇(=500), we select hidden node number H=9.
Finally, we get 10-27-9-10 as the optimal 3-layer RBF model.

Testing error of each well log using 10-27-9-10 three-layer RBF model Average error: 0.046625
Average testing error of each three-layer RBF model in simulation Experiments using RBFs with different number of hidden nodes. 10-27-9-10 get the smallest average error in testing. So it is selected to the real data application.
We have the modification of 2-layer RBF and propose 3-layer RBF for well log data inversion.
3-layer RBF has better inversion than 2-layer RBF because more layers can do more nonlinear mapping.
In the simulation, the optimal 3-layer model is 10-27-9-10. It can get the smallest average mean absolute error in the testing. The trained 10-27-9-10 RBFmodel is applied to the real well log data inversion. The result is acceptable and good. It shows that the RBF model can work on well log data inversion. Errors are different at experiments because initial weights are different in the network. But the order or percentage of errors can be for comparison in the RBF performance.
