Some new techniques for operational computers Gordon, Kenneth Ian


This thesis is principally concerned with an investigation into possible methods of achieving the multiplication of two five digit decimal numbers coded in a pulse position form. Several different methods are investigated, the main effort being on devices employing a combination of digital and analog techniques. It is seen that despite the theoretical simplicity of these hybrid units, their practical realization often involves considerable difficulty. The final multiplier configuration studied offers the required accuracies with the use of simple circuitry.
