Abstract:

OPTICAL SYSTOLIC ARRAY PROCESSORS WERE INVENTED BY THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR TWO YEARS AGO AND HAVE BECOME THE SUBJECT OF INTENSE INTEREST IN THE UNITED STATES, THE SOVIET UNION, AND JAPAN. THEY OFFER THE SPEED OF SUPERCOMPUTERS (TENS OF GIGAFLOPS PER MODULE) WITH MUCH LOWER COST, VOLUME, AND POWER CONSUMPTION. WHAT NO ONE IS STUDYING IS HOW TO OPERATE THESE MODULES IN PARALLEL TO SOLVE LARGE LINEAR ALGEBRA PROBLEMS. THIS IS, THEREFORE, A GENERIC PROBLEM OF GREAT IMPORTANCE. WE PROPOSE TO ADDRESS IT IN PHASE I. AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. AND ITS PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR ARE REGARDED AS THE LEADERS IN THIS FIELD. DR. CAULFIELD HAS CHAIRED MANY MEETINGS IN THIS FAST DEVELOPING FIELD AND WILL CHAIR THE NEXT MAJOR SYMPOSIUM - THE OSA TOPICAL MEETING IN MARCH, 1985. AERODYNE IS ALREADY SEEKING TO PUT TOGETHER PHASE II FUNDING FROM PRIVATE SOURCES.
