Mathematical model of discrete-time K-winners-take-all (KWTA) neural circuit that can identify K maximal from N unknown signals, where <≤ NK1 is proposed. In contrast to existing analogs the model has high resolution, calculation simplicity, it can process signals located in arbitrary finite range and possesses signal ordering preserving property.
