A multiprocessor for solving spatial problems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A multiprocessor architecture for the solution of spatial and graphical problems by recursive subdivision is proposed. The trees that result from such divisions are mapped on to a closed graph, which is then considered as a network of processors. Simulations of these configurations have been performed with encouraging results. Proposals are made for the implementation of such machines.
