Bounty: 50

I’m currently looking into the different training methods of NN. I’ve implemented a simple gradient descent method using backpropagation in my NN (just a very simple NN with 1 hidden layer). I’m now struggling with implementing a more sophisticated training (weights and biases) algorithm, i.e. the Levenberg-Marquardt. Is there also such an elegant method which uses backpropagation to calculate the jacobian?

Edit: I’ve found [1] which is a really interesting article and is almost what I’m looking for. Nevertheless, I don’t understand how I propagate through the different layers because I only have the error $e$ for the last layer (output layer). However, I want to adjust two weigth matrices (from input to hidden layer and from hidden layer to output).
