Paper Abstract

An entirely optical method is proposed for solving many linear equations. A possible implementation of a simultaneous equation solver, (or equivalently an integral equation solver), is discussed. A method of matrix by matrix multiplication using random phase masks is proposed and shown to enable the optical solution of matrix equations, (or equivalently the solution of two dimensional integral equations).
