Abstract : This report is the second interim report of a three year study and investigation to develop mathematical models of information processing systems. The general area of research includes machine design, automata theory, and the application of mathematical models to problems in machine design. The areas of research described in this report are divided into seven sections: studies in the theory of algorithms, determination of isomorphism invariants for sequential machines, research on switching theory and combinations, research on a graph model for concurrent computation, consideration of statistical efficiency of algorithms for the state assignment of sequential machines, problems in characterizing and analyzing information processors, and the development of a switching theory model for computer control circuits.
