Abstract

An efficient higher-order modified signed-digit optical symbolic substitution technique for addition and subtraction has been derived. This two-step symbolic substitution technique, which is independent of the number of bits to be processed, saves a tremendous amount of computation time. Two separate approaches for optical implementation that use content-addressable memory and the joint transform correlator are also suggested.
