Abstract:

The goal of this program is to develop a concept for an optical computer architecture for symbolic computing by defining a computation model of a high level computer language, examining the possible devices for the ultimate construction of a processor, and by defining required optical operations. The major accomplishments in chronological order of this quarter include Definition of Five level hierarchy Linear Array representation of processor NodeNetwork partitioning Primitive definitions for distributed execution and Recursion.
