## Abstract

The VLSI implementation of the Accelerated Overrelaxation (AOR) method, when used for the accurate computation of the least-squares solutions of overdetermined systems, is the problem addressed here. As the size of this computational task is usually very large, we use space-time domain expansion techniques to partition the computation and map it onto a fixed size VLSI architecture.
