Abstract : The results of a three year research study in automata theory and iterative array computers are presented in the report, which consists of four volumes and five parts. Volume I consists of Part 1 which contains summaries of technical reports published in 1967 and 1968 under the project, and Part 2, which consists of two short review papers on specific topics in automata theory. The first paper presents the main results of finite state probabilistic automata, Markov chains, and stochastic sequential machines, while the second presents some topics in the theory of linear sequential machines. Abstracts of the individual papers are given in the appropriate volumes. (Author)
