Classification using a Polynomial Neural Network (PNN) can be considered as a multi-objective problem rather than as a single objective one. Measures like predictive accuracy and architectural complexity used for evaluating PNN based classification can be thought of as two different conflicting objectives. Using these two metrics as the objectives of classification problem, this paper uses a Pareto based Particle Swarm Optimisation (PPSO) technique to find out a set of non-dominated solutions

An extensive experimental study has been carried out to illustrate the importance and effectiveness of the proposed method.
