Abstract
We want to present a further development of our technique of backpropagation with stochastic preprocessing to recognize particle tracks in a silicon calorimeter on a satellite to detect cosmic ray composition. In the first release we applied our technique to distinguish between two classes of discrete patterns. In the present release we developed the stochastic preprocessing to deal with continuous patterns such as the energy deposited by a cosmic particle. From the theoretical standpoint we demonstrate that by such a preprocessing technique the neural net is able to represent the complexity of learning set in a polynomial and not exponential time. This work is a part of `Skynnet' international project supported by INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics) and partially devoted to the application of neural techniques for recognition of high energy particle tracks in spatial environment.
