Paper Abstract

Deformable mirror and charge coupled devices are combined with parallel high speed electronics in order to produce a nearest neighbor computer in which the value at each point in a 2D array may be simultaneously updated based on values at the immediately surrounding points. The concept of such a machine is described together with its application to image processing and partial differential equation solution. Repeated iteration enables filtering which involves points at greater distance than the nearest neighbor. The problem is discussed of overcoming the limited dynamic range of the deformable mirror device for application to the solution of partial differential equations.
