Abstract : The invention is a computer memory architecture wherein a multiply partitioned N-dimensional memory for serial and parallel computers provides a specialized storage and retrieval media. It can efficiently service associated computational processes with one dimensional hyperplanes of data that are accessible from any of the N-directions in a single access, or fewer accesses than required of conventional computer memory. This architecture reduces access time and complexity in parallel and array processing. Patent applications. (rrh)
