Abstract : Two current trends in computing, namely the increasing importance of parallelism in computer operations and the concept of programming generality, indicate that new computer systems must employ location-independent addressing. One possible manner of accomplishing this objective involves the use of an associative memory for the computer system. The report is concerned with the study, analysis, and design of a multi-level associative memory for a highly parallel computer system, as well as the representation and execution of highly parallel programs in such a memory hierarchy.
