Guest Editorial: Special Section on Computer Arithmetic for Optical Computing

Paper Abstract

The interest in parallel binary and non-binary computer arithmetic in digital computing was initiated with the pioneering works of Avizienis.1 The parallel nature of such modified binary systems prompted researchers to adopt the modified signed-digit (MSD) algorithm for optical computing.2 Around the same time, non-binary systems such as multiple valued logic (MVL) (Ref.
