    This paper illustrates a novel method to analyze artificial neural networks so as to gain insight into their internal functionality. To this purpose, we will show analysis results of some feed-forward–error-back-propagation neural networks for image processing. We will describe them in terms of domain-dependent basic functions, which are, in the case of the digital image processing domain, differential operators of various orders and with various angles of operation. Some other pixel classification techniques are analyzed in the same way, enabling easy comparison.
