Abstract

"The Dinary Numerical System (DNS) is an extension of Binary Numerical System. By utilizing the newly developed Large-Scale-Integration technology, DNS can be implemented as a new concept of computer organization which has the merits of parallel processing. DNS consists of three field elements: they are -1, 0, and +1. Since DNS representation is not necessarily unique, new algorithms to generate the number of representations and all equivalent representations are presented in this paper. A Block-Oriented-Computer (BOC) is developed as an array of computing systems. For each of the systems, the arithmetic unit is essentially a modified Digital Differential Analyzer. The BOC uses binary and dinary numbers as inputs. After being manipulated by special schemes, the BOC which operates from left to right contrary to the conventional computers generates dinary numbers as outputs. The merit of the left-to-right algorithm is that the most significant digits are available for further operations while the least significant digits are still being processed"--Abstract, page ii.
