Abstract : The first results of a program of research whose aim is to consolidate and extend the state of the art of computer assembly system design and implementation are presented. Assembly systems are, in a very real sense, the core of the modern programming systems used to prepare problems for calculation of solutions in digital computers. The importance of proper design of assembly systems is especially apparent in the implementa tion of such large programs as the control pro grams for SAGE and SACCS. The vehicle for this research has been the Generalized Assembly System (GAS), programmed in an experimental form for the IBM 7090 Data Processing System. This memorandum will be of interest to those concerned with the design and implementation of compilers and assembly systems. (Author)
