Abstract : The dissertation describes how a remote computer graphics terminal was connected into an existing multi-console operating system which previously supported only Teletype and alphanumeric display terminals. In this environment an Interactive Graph Theory System was built where modularity and flexibility have been stressed. The DEC-338 is used both as an alphanumeric console and a graphics terminal. The design has departed from other efforts involving a computer graphics terminal with processing power. In this system the terminal may be programmed to perform both local functions and functions which are performed as subroutines of the interactive program running in the central computer.
