Paper Abstract

Optical look-up tables (LUT's) are used for solving the Adaptive Beamforming problem in a quadratic (Complex) Residue Number System, QRNS. It is shown that QRNS is isomorphic to the usual RNS arithmetic so that real moduli implementations can be used. In QRNS, a system of linear equations can appear singular when the determinant is a multiple of one of the moduli used in the representation. It is shown that this apparent singularity can be avoided and that the singular-like system of equation can be solved uniquely in spite of the apparent singularity. An example is given to illustrate the technique of solving singular-like QRNS systems of equations. The optical implementation of QRNS arithmetic uses Second Factorization which is shown to significantly reduce the number of optical components needed in the LUT's.
