    Words have only one purpose in a technical context–the transmission of information. When they fail to do that, they lead to confusion and misunderstanding. "Distributed data processing" and "distributed processing" are two phrases which illustrate that axiom. Like many other words in the lexicon of the computer professional, these have become cliches through over-use, losing much of their or... View full abstract»

    The Honeywell Experimental Distributed Processor (HXDP) is a vehicle for research in the science and engineering of processor interconnection, executive control, and user software for a certain class of multiple-processor computers which we call "distributed computer" systems. Such systems are very unconventional in that they accomplish total system-wide executive control in the absence of any cen... View full abstract»

    Successful implementation of most distributed processing systems hinges on solutions to the problems of data mangement, some of which arise directly from the nature of distributed architecture, while others carry over from centralized systems, acquiring new importance in their broadened environment. Numerous solutions have been proposed for the most important of these problems. View full abstract»

    The last decade has seen the rapid evolution of computer communication networks from research curiosities to operational utilities. The Arpanet,1for example, currently supports communication among more than 100 computer systems and is used daily by hundreds of users. Commercial networks, such as Telenet2in the United States and Datapac3in Canada, have very bright f... View full abstract»

    After 15 years of development, much promise, but limited use, is interactive computer graphics finally due for a sharp growth spurt? If the mood projected at the Fourth Annual Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques held in San Jose recently is any indication, the answer would seem to be yes. On the hardware side, costs are coming down and capability is going up, reflecting tren... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1967 KB)

    The modern approach in teaching computer architecture is to describe the computing machine in terms of its major units (store, processor, etc.) and then to describe each of these units in progressively greater detail. This contrasts with the earlier approach in which individual gating circuits were described, and later developed into larger units. The older approach lends itself well to laboratory...
