The ability to map and solve combinatorial optimization problems with constraints on neural networks has frequently motivated a proposal for using such a model of computation.

We introduce a new stochastic neural model, working out for a specific class of constraints, which is able to choose adaptively its weights in order to find solutions into a proper subspace (feasible region) of the search space.

We show its asymptotic convergence properties and give evidence of its ability to find hight quality solution on benchmark and randomly generated instances of a specific problem.
