Paper Abstract

A FFNN has been used to classify the 1-prong (tau) decays. The net is able to separate hadronic decays from leptonic with 90% efficiency and 93% purity. Applied to the data taken by the DELPHI detector at LEP collider during 1992, the (tau) inclusive 1-prong hadronic branching ratio has been measured to be B1h equals 0.5050 +/- 0.0032-0.0031+0.0046.
