Abstract

Abstract parallel computational models are discussed and related to optical computing. Two classes of parallel computing models, shared memory and graph/network, are used to analyze some of the possible effects of optical technology on parallel computing. It is found that the use of optics potentially provides certain fundamental advantages in communication and implementation of the architectures based on these models. Some factors that limit the communication capabilities of optical systems for network models are discussed.
