The authors study the performance of a single-layer perceptron in realising a binary mapping of Gaussian input patterns. By introducing non-trivial correlations among the patterns, they generate a family of mappings including easier ones where similar inputs are mapped into the same output, and more difficult ones where similar inputs are mapped into different classes. The difficulty of the problem is gauged by the storage capacity of the network, which is higher for the easier problems.
