Abstract : The patent describes an arithmetic logic unit which requires an end-around carry in its operation and obtains this carry from an auxiliary arithmetic logic unit which is connected in parallel with it. Since the end-around carry does not appear in a closed loop, oscillations which might otherwise occur in the solution because of the irregular appearance of input data are minimized.
