Various lateral inhibition neural networks are studied by means of computer simulation regarding their ability to sharpen the input excitation curves. To quantify this ability we introduced two new entropy-like quantities (called the iteration entropy and the rate of convergence) which represent suitable measures for the sharpening of the input excitation curves in a certain lateral inhibition neural network. Using these quantities we quantitatively described the sharpening ability of different lateral inhibition networks.
