Abstract : This report begins with a revised characterization of the class of iterative circuit computers (i.c.c.), the various members f this class being determined by the substituton instances of a quintuple (A, A to the O power, X, f, P) where A is any finitely generated abelian group, A to the O power is a selected subset thereof, X is any finite set, f and P are finite functions over extensions of X. A brief decription of the relation of i.c.c.'s to universal embedding spaces follows. The report concludes with a discussion of some of the advantages and disadvantages of i.c.c. rganiation for computers constructed of microelectric modules. (Author)
