    The success of computers in doing routine work formerly done by people suggests that a computer capable of adjusting itself to a changing environment might be desirable. Such a characteristic might be especially valuable to the telephone industry which must service large numbers of people having changing needs and desires. As a step in this direction a relay machine which plays a penny-matching ga... View full abstract»

    A new high-speed data-accumulation system has been designed for a supersonic wind tunnel. The data are recorded on punched paper tape for direct input into an Electrodata digital computer. Extensive presentation of data is available to the wind-tunnel operators. All data are typed by an electric typewriter, and an automatic plotting machine plots several of the data words as functions of the indep... View full abstract»

  • Odd Binary Asynchronous Counters

    This paper describes a general method for modifying conventional binary asynchronous counters such that the counting register advances by any desired odd integer for each received count. The pertinent design features of conventional additive and subtractive asynchronous counters are reviewed. Simplification of the design of a counter which advances by an odd integer is achieved through use of a se... View full abstract»

  • Complexity in Electronic Switching Circuits

    The complexity of an electronic switching circuit is defined in a sufficiently general way so that most definitions which are presently used may be included. If ¿(p, q) is the complexity of a p input q output circuit which has been minimized then we may define E(p, q) as the maximum of ¿(p, q) over all p input, q output circuits. In spite of the generality of the definition of complexity one may... View full abstract»

    The application of Minnick and Ashenhurst's technique of p-fold multiple-coincidence magnetic storage in an n x n array of cores is shown to require finding (p-2) orthogonal Latin squares of order n. The value of this technique lies in the reduction it effects in the disturbance of unselected cores. A method is suggested for reducing this disturbance to a level lower than that obtained by Minnick ... View full abstract»

    The sine curve is approximated by a set of straight line segments whose slopes are chosen to be integral multiples of a binary fraction. A programmed counter counts up or down at a rate proportional to the slope, thus generating an approximate sine function. Using (360/256)¿1.4 degree intervals and four integral slopes, ±0(1/128), ±1(1/128), ±2(1/128), ±3(1/128), the maximum difference betwee... View full abstract»

  • A Time-Division Multiplier

    A time-division multiplier for analog computers is described. Its features, for a switching pulse frequency of 2,000 cycles per second, are as follows: an accuracy of one part in a thousand, a pass band of 2 cycles per second, an input impedance of one megohm, and a very low output impedance (the output impedance of a feedback amplifier). This multiplier has the following advantages when compared ... View full abstract»
