Abstract
The Heidelberg-Moscow Experiment is presently the most sensitive experiment looking for neutrinoless double-beta decay. Recently the already very low background has been lowered by means of a Digital Pulseshape Analysis using a one parameter cut to distinguish between pointlike events and multiple scattered events. To use all the information contained in a recorded digital pulse, we developed a new technique for event recognition based on neural networks.
