Paper Abstract

The design of a parallel processor containing 60 32-bit processors with on-chip floating point hardware, 60 Mbytes of memory, hardware random number generation, and a high bandwidth, re-configurable interprocessor communications system is discussed. The system is especially well-suited to run Monte Carlo-based algorithms, such as simulated annealing, for optimization and estimation problems in nuclear medicine and other areas.
