    In contrast to the crude analog-digital combinations of the 1960's, today's hybrids are true multiprocessors supported by realtime operating systems. Their solid-state analog computing elements loaded digitally in microseconds, together with their equation-oriented compilers, provide efficient, automatic setup and high productivity. Teamed with flexible, low-cost alphanumeric/graphic displays, mod... View full abstract»

    To understand and appreciate the various software requirements for a hybrid computer system one must first understand the environment in which the system is used. It may perhaps also be useful to trace the evolution of the analog computer to the hybrid computer–specifically as hardware developments directed software developments. View full abstract»

    For many years it has been claimed that analog and hybrid computers have a sizeable speed advantage over digital computers in the solution of differential equations. This speed advantage has, in fact, been documented for a number of specific studies, where direct comparisons with all-digital solutions have shown reduced run times and resulting cost savings using analog or hybrid computers. The pur... View full abstract»

    Simply defined, a hybrid computer is the sophisticated combination of a real-time interrupt-oriented digital computer with one or more parallel analog processors. Each device is used so as to exploit its own best advantage toward the orderly, rapid solution of the problem at hand in a synergistic manner. This typically involves the preparation and use of mathematical models that dynamically descri... View full abstract»

    In introducing the concept of an advanced hybrid computer system it is appropriate to describe briefly the current-generation hybrid system from which the advance is being made. The true significance of the advanced system can then be appreciated–namely that it retains all the advantages and at the same time removes the short-comings of the present generation of hybrid computers.
