General types of rectifier computing circuits are described and analyzed. Stress is placed upon the realization of the highest speed of operation. Selenium-rectifier elements are used throughout, although the same analysis applies to all other types of rectifiers. A speed of 100 kc obtlainable from selenium rectifiers. Megacycle operation is possible. Special techniques of circuit construction are developed which result in a simple, compact, and economical system, applicable not only to large-scale digital computing machines but also to complicated control systems.
