Abstract—This paper describes the concept of a hardware sequential decision-making device consisting principally of an array or network of nodes which can support a plurality of connections among the nodes on a simultaneous basis. The connection "chains" the nodes together. The application of the device to a dynamic computer memory allocation system is described in the paper. In this use, each "node" would correspond to a word or a group of words in a storage device, the access to which is controlled by a control unit employing the node network. Thus, only one node needs to be selected to either load a record into the controlled memory unit, or to read the record from it.
