Paper Abstract

Optical processors performing a large number of multiplications and additions in parallel are ideally suited for matrix algebraic operations, such as vector-matrix and matrix-matrix multiplication. A survey is made of different algorithms and architectures for optical matrix algebraic processors. These architectures are then compared with respect to their hardware requirements and computational efficiencies.
