In this chapter, the primary focus is on theoretical and empirical study of functional link neural networks (FLNNs) for classification. We present a hybrid Chebyshev functional link neural network (cFLNN) without hidden layer with evolvable particle swarm optimization (ePSO) for classification. The resulted classifier is then used for assigning proper class label to an unknown sample. The hybrid cFLNN is a type of feed-forward neural networks, which have the ability to transform the non-linear input space into higher dimensional space where linear separability is possible. In particular, the proposed hybrid cFLNN combines the best attribute of evolvable particle swarm optimization (ePSO), back-propagation learning (BP-Learning), and Chebyshev functional link neural networks (CFLNN). We have shown its effectiveness of classifying the unknown pattern using the datasets obtained from UCI repository. The computational results are then compared with other higher order neural networks (HONNs) like functional link neural network with a generic basis functions, Pi-Sigma neural network (PSNN), radial basis function neural network (RBFNN), and ridge polynomial neural network (RPNN).
