Recent developments in the design of integrated optical circuits for performing optical numerical computations are discussed. The use of systolic architectures for these IOC's is described and the natural marriage of IOC's with the systolic concept is discussed. Examples include optical binary correlation, polynomial evaluation, and matrix multiplication.
