A collection of over 2600 technical papers (some refereed, some not), covering the full range of computer system design and maintained by the Computer Society as a service to the information processing community.

To submit papers: Send two copies of a paper of interest to the computer field to IEEE Computer Society Publications Office, 5855 Naples Plaza, Suite 301, Long Beach, CA 90803.

Include a 50-100 word abstract, a list of index terms (four maximum), and a cover letter giving permission to enter the paper in the Repository (entry in the Repository does not constitute publication).

All submitted material should be unbound, unstapled, printed one side only in black on 87/z " x 11 " white paper.

Material not conforming to the above requirements will not be accepted.

To order papers: State the R-number, listed before the author's last name, of each paper you order. Prices are 12 cents per page, plus $1.00 service charge for orders under 50 pages.

Microfiche copies are available for $2.50 for manuscripts under 50 pages, plus $2.50 for each additional 50 pages or fraction thereof.

R78-102 -- Parhami, B., "An Introduction to the Geometry of Digital Pictures" (12 pp., Arya-Mehr University of Technology, Tehran, Iran)

A digital picture is defined as a set of points on the XY plane with integer coordinates, called grid points, which represent geometric patterns in computer memories. The geometry of digital pictures defines the relationship between the patterns and the corresponding digital pictures. This paper lays the foundation of digital picture geometry by presenting fundamental definitions and initial results, with emphasis placed on properties of straight line segments.

R78-103 -- Parhami, B., "Interconnection Redundancy for Reliability Enhancement in Digital Systems" (23 pp., Arya-Mehr University of Technology, Tehran, Iran)

Even though interconnections are considerably more reliable than other module-level components in a digital system, the unreliability of interconnections contributes heavily to the overall system unreliability when the module-level components are protected by conventional redundancy techniques. This is even more significant when a common bus is used for data
