Parallel Computing in Lattice Theory
Some parallel processor systems are presented and applied to lattice theories in physics. The first type of system is an analogue parallel computer which simulates dynamical models instantaneously. The second type is a digital computer system with a parallel Non-Von-Neumann architecture that is especially suited for simulating lattice models. It does that as fast as present days supercomputers, such as CRAY and CYPER 205, but with a cost/benefit ratio which is 0,5% to that of CRAY or CYBER.
