Abstract : The effort which is documented by this thesis has produced a microprogrammed stack machine emulator adapted to the Burroughs Aerospace Multiprocessor. The emulator is written in a symbolic microlanguage, called TRANSLANG, which was developed by Burroughs corporation. A listing of the microlanguage is not included with the report. The purpose of the emulation is the implementation of an ALGOL capability on the Aerospace Multiprocessor. The emulation is of a pseudo machine similar to the Burroughs B6500 system. The report discusses the structure of the emulated machine pertinent to the emulation. In addition, the structure of the emulator is presented with detailed descriptions of individual routines and their interaction within the emulator. (Author)
