Studies relating to a new computer system called the Fixed-Plus-Variable Computer are reviewed. Properties of one or more modern machines were studied and the operations of each machine were compared with the IBM 709 - 7090. Some work was done on description of the complete order lists in a common language. Significant analytical work was carried out in related areas of studies of unconventional arithmetic and studies of adaptive control systems with emphasis on dynamic programming formulation. Temperature measurements of ferromagnetic memory elements, development of thin film deposition equipment, studies of coupling between piezoelectric and magnetostrictive phenomena, and initiation of the design and measurement of high speed switching circuits are reported.
