The frail form of a Woman, being liable to be shattered by such an approximation, must be preserved by the State; but since Women cannot be distinguished by the sense of sight from Men, the Law ordains universally that neither Man nor Woman shall be approached so closely as to destroy the interval between the approximator and the approximated.
The other is that it can be easily realized to be a universal approximator, which fulfills a nonlinear mapping from an input domain to a corresponding output domain [2, 5, 19].
The multilayer perception (MLP) network, a type of ANN, has been found to be 'a robust function approximator for prediction and classification problem[s]' (Delen, Sharda, & Bessonov, 2006, 437).

But these two algorithms still require many features especially for highly nonlinear RL problems, since the RLS approximator assumes a linear model [4].
T-S fuzzy model can be regarded as a universal approximator for the general nonlinear system.
The GaussianAxon applies a Gaussian function in the range of 0 to 1 to each neuron in the layer and is considered to be a local function approximator since it only responds significantly to the peak of the Gaussian of the input space.
The Cerebellar Model Arithmetic Computer (CMAC) algorithm provides a computationally-efficient and accurate nonlinear approximator.
This mapping is performed with the use of artificial neural network (ANN) multidimensional approximator [4,5], neurofuzzy system [6] or linear matrix operator [7].
