Paper Abstract

With the development of fast parallel optical matrix-vector multipliers and matrix-matrix multipliers, a need has arisen to reevaluate algorithms designed for electronic digital computers. Two examples are shown here. First, we discuss algorithms for eigenvector/eigenvalue problems using matrix-matrix multiplication. Second, we discuss relaxation and over relaxation methods for feedback in systolic array processors.
