Abstract:

The report covers the first phase of work intended to provide a hybrid-computer solution language for partial differential equations. The programming techniques and philosophy are discussed, and a sample problem solution is presented with details. This first attempt has been successful and provides a hybrid-computer scheme which is at least 50 times faster than the comparable purely digital approach. The program makes use of hybrid-computer graphics, with the input applied directly to the Tektronix 4010 Graphics Terminal and the solution curves presented to the graphics terminal on-line.
