Abstract

Procedures for planning and executing arbitrary parallel processing with optical array logic are generalized as a systematic programming technique of optical parallel processing. Optical array logic is a technique for achieving any parallel neighborhood operation with simple coding and optical correlation. An original symbolic notation facilitates programming of parallel processing with optical array logic, so that many problems can be optically solved using optical array logic. Two examples of image data processing are presented to illustrate the programming procedure of parallel processing with optical array logic.
