The 1987 Princeton Workshop on set of rules, structure and know-how concerns for types of Concurrent Computation used to be geared up as an interdisciplinary paintings­ store emphasizing present examine instructions towards concurrent computing structures. With contributors from a number of diverse fields of specialization, the workshop cov­ ered a wide selection of issues, even though under no circumstances a whole go element of matters during this speedily relocating box. The papers incorporated during this publication have been ready for the workshop and, taken jointly, supply a view of the extensive diversity of concerns and replacement instructions being explored. to arrange many of the papers, the booklet has been divided into 5 elements. half I considers new expertise instructions. half II emphasizes underlying theoretical concerns. conversation concerns, that are advert­ wearing the vast majority of papers, are particularly highlighted partly III. half IV comprises papers stressing the fault tolerance and reliability of platforms. ultimately, half V contains systems-oriented papers, the place the process levels from VLSI circuits via robust parallel pcs. a lot of the preliminary making plans of the workshop was once accomplished via an off-the-cuff AT&T Bell Laboratories crew such as Mehdi Hatamian, Vijay Kumar, Adri­ aan Ligtenberg, Sailesh Rao, P. Subrahmanyam and myself. we're thankful to Stuart Schwartz, either for the help of Princeton collage and for his orga­ nizing neighborhood preparations for the workshop, and to the individuals of the organizing committee, whose options for members and dialogue subject matters have been par­ ticularly important.

We have developed a technique which we call Computational Origami which takes advantage of the regularity imposed by symbolic substitution to partition and schedule a computation CHAPTER 2. 3: A diagram of an optical symbolic substitution unit. 4: Experimental demonstration of the recognizer portion of an optical symbolic substitution unit. 4. OPTICAL LOGIC GATES to achieve an arbitrary hardware/ time trade-off. The technique works by forcing an algorithm into special regular array in which all the data dependencies can be broken.

The computer aided design programs used to compute this routing also provide statistics of the wiring within the systolic processor. 10 shows the histogram of total wire lengths per interconnection. The longest lines are clock distribution lines and these tend to be in the 1 to 2 cm range. Since none of the other lines are bus lines, they are generally much shorter and the line drivers for these signals can be source terminated. 11. Most of the connections consist of 2-3 segments leading to good transmission line performance since only a few right angle turns arise.

A set of vectors (referred to as features) is stored in the network, each feature along the input line of an amplifier (referred to as 'label' unit). The conductances of the resistors represent the components of the features. A vector is given at the input of the network and is compared with all the stored features in parallel. 4. 3: A network set up for pattern classification or feature extraction. The '+' and the '-' mark excitatory and inhibitory connections respectively (an excitatory connection inputs current into the line; an inhibitory connection draws current from the line).
