Abstract

A new parallel optical architecture is introduced for computing massively data-parallel applications. The system processes two-dimensional binary images as basic computational entities. The processing is based on the optical symbolic substitution (SS) technique. New optical SS rules are introduced as well as a technique for designing and mapping data-parallel algorithms onto the proposed architecture. Implementation issues and performance analysis are also considered.
