Abstract

The use of the twos complement binary representation in performing matrix–matrix multiplication using an optical engagement array architecture is presented. Twos complement arithmetic offers a convenient means for handling bipolar numbers, avoids the need for matrix partitioning when the matrices are real, and offers a means to improve accuracy over conventional optical analog techniques.
