    A mathematical framework for the convergence analysis of the well-known Quickprop method is described. Furthermore, we propose a modification of this method that exhibits improved convergence speed and stability, and, at the same time, alleviates the use of heuristic learning parameters. Simulations are conducted to compare and evaluate the performance of the new modified Quickprop algorithm with various popular training algorithms. The results of the experiments indicate that the increased convergence rates achieved by the proposed algorithm, affect by no means its generalization capability and stability.
