Describes an artificial neural network (ANN) architecture for constructing maximum entropy (MaxEnt) models based on discrete distributions. Entropy is maximized by a partition function method involving the use of Lagrange multipliers which is capable of implementation by an ANN architecture. The maximum entropy network (MaxEN), consists of a training module and a testing module of interconnected processing elements. The practical use of the MaxEN network is illustrated with an application in the clinical management of early breast cancer patients
