The purpose of this paper is to explore the representation capability of radial basis function (RBF) neural networks. The main results are: 1) the necessary and sufficient condition for a function of one variable to be qualified as an activation function in RBF network is that the function is not an even polynomial, and 2) the capability of approximation to nonlinear functionals and operators by RBF networks is revealed, using sample data either in frequency domain or in time domain, which can be used in system identification by neural networks
