Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An edge-addressed optical matrix processing system based in part on outer product decomposition is presented that not only can perform matrix-matrix multiplication but also many linear signal processing functions such as correlation and convolution, the calculation of the cross-ambiguity function, the matrix inversion, and histogram generation. Techniques for handling complex data are also presented.
