During the 1983 JASON summer study, the authors their investigation of techniques that might be used to achieve a radical improvement in digital computer performance. In their previous study, they investigated residue arithmetic and symbolic computing this report discusses an extension of our symbolic computing into source program transformations and a new topic, reversible computing. The general goal of the earlier study was to identify new approaches for computer system development. The goal of this report is the same. The authors will try to identify critical mathematical and computer concepts that could lead to a radical increase in future computer performance, in calculating important, and currently difficult, problems.
