We consider a simple model of a linear systolic array with serial input/output and one-way data communication. We show that such an array can be used to solve some scheduling and graph problems efficiently. The systolic algorithms are developed in two stages. First an algorithm on a restricted type of sequential machine is constructed. Then the sequential machine algorithm is transformed into a systolic algorithm. The transformation can be done automatically and efficiently.
