A new computing scheme was proposed by von Neumann in a patent submitted in 1954 and granted posthumously last December. This paper is an explanatory statement of those ideas. The concept of using the phase of a sine-wave signal as an information-bearing medium which together with majority logic permits the realization of logic operations is described in detail. Simple logical aggregates are given as examples.
