Graphical Simulation of an analog computer using spreadsheets
free download

This paper presents a spreadsheet method for the graphical simulation of analog computers (AC) used in control systems. It is based on simulating basic AC blocks like adders, integrators, potentiometers, inverters, and nonlinear devices. To make the simulation

Analog computer trumps Turing model
free download

The latest thesis, advanced by Hava Siegelmann at the Technion Institute of Technology, claims that some computational problems can only be solved by analog neural networks. Since neural networks are essentially analog computers, the work suggests, on a ABSTRACT An analog computer patching program has been written as an extension to S/360 CSMP. This approach to patching programs has the advantage of providing patching information directly from a simula-tion run without appreciable extra effort on the part of the
