Abstract:

A cellular pyramid is an exponentially tapering stack of arrays of processors cells, where each cell is connected to its neighbors siblings on its own level, to a parent on the level above, and to its children on the level below. It is shown that in some situations, if information flows top-down only, from fathers to sons, then a cellular pyramid may be no faster than a one-level cellular array but it may be possible to use simpler cells in the pyramid case.
