Paper Abstract

This paper presents a systolic optical processor for matrix multiplication, with the property that the results of one matrix multiplication can re-enter the processor and be used in the next multiplication without memorizing the intermediate results. Such a design is said to be a result reusable, optical processor (R.R.O.P.). The applications of the reusable systolic optical matrix multiplication processor include the calculation of matrix powers, and the evaluation of matrix polynomials. Some specific applications are the iterative solution of linear systems of equations; improved performance for eigenvalue-eigenvector computations; iterative matrix inversion and the calculation of the matrix exponential as well as many other matrix functions.
