Abstract:

A hybrid computer which has digital input-output and an analog arithmetic unit is described. Digital inputs are converted into composite waveforms which appear as numerical quantities, thereby making arithmetic operations possible by direct manipulation of the waveform. Amplitude growth resulting from incomplete carry operations is a critical problem. Applications of fixed radix base three and residue number representation to the computer are illustrated. Problems of residue arithmetic and solutions to amplitude growth are considered. Author
