Paper Abstract

A space integrating optical linear algebra processor is described and laboratory performance of the system in the solution of nonlinear matrix equations for optimal control are presented. A new matrix partitioning method is described and the accuracy of the analog implementation of this processor is emphasized. This same architecture is capable of high accuracy performance. Different performance measures and their suitability as criteria for performance are also noted and discussed.
