Abstract : Data rearrangement is among the most prevalent and time-consuming tasks for which computers are used. Some idea of the prevalence of this task may be gained by observing that the memory input sequence is different from the memory output sequence in nearly every computer program. This report has been prepared to display special switching networks and memory systems that permit simultaneous storage and rearrangement of data so that the required difference between input and output data sequences can be accommodated without expenditure of time.
