Advanced general-purpose computer organizations capable of parallel data processing were studied. The study resulted in the design of two computer organizations designated Machine I and Machine II capable of parallel data processing and fast sorting and table searching in memory. These machine organizations were possible because of the development of a special memory that permits many processing and input-output units to access memory simultaneously without conflict. The applications effort was focused on the development of solution models which exploited the maximum amount of parallelism resident within a problem. Two major problems were investigated a dynamic programming problem, and parallel compilation. Detailed programs were written for the dynamic programming problem on Machine I and a parallel compilation algorithm on Machine II. These same problems also were programmed on the IBM 7090 to provide a standard of comparison. In both cases, the parallel processing capability of the machines afforded significant increases in speed of program execution.
