Abstract:

The subject of the report is the development of the design for a specially-organized, general-purpose computer which performs matrix operations efficiently. The content of the report is summarized as follows First, a review of the relevant work which has been done with microcellular and macrocellular techniques is made. Second, the discrete Kalman filter is described as an example of the type of problem for which this computer is efficient. Third, a detailed design for a cellular, array-structured computer is presented. Fourth, a computer program which simulates the cellular computer is described. Fifth, the recommendation is made that one cell and the associated control circuits be constructed to determine the feasibility of producing a hardware realization of the entire computer. Author
