Would it be plausible to write a recursive version of backpropagation through time for recurrent neural network training? I've only found the iterative version:

    $\begingroup$ Is there a reason to care whether it is recursive or iterative? Is there a motivation or context behind what drives you to ask this question? I suspect the answer is going to be "sure, not that it makes any difference"; if that's the answer, is it going to answer your question? $\endgroup$ – D.W. May 12 '14 at 16:14
