Telsim is a TELetypewriter SIMulation language designed for nonprogrammers and written for a moderate-size time-sharing system. It simulates continuous systems that can be described by a block diagram. Its input language is a natural engineering description of the boxes that comprise the diagram. The time-sharing system is offered commercially by the General Electric Company. This system uses a GE-235 computer shared by a number of remote model 33 or 35 teletypewriters. The programming language… 

On-Line Simulation of Block-Diagram Systems

This paper is concerned with a general approach to the on-line simulation of block-diagram systems. These systems may be analog, digital, or hybrid; memory or memoryless; explicit or implicit (i.e.,



A block diagram compiler

A computer program known asBLODI, which accepts for an input a source program written in the BLODI language, is described, and the principles of the compiler are explained and applications are discussed.

COBLOC-A Program for All-Digital Simulation of a Hybrid Computer

The COBLOC programming system was written to enable all-digital simulation of the operation of large mode-controlled hybrid computers and has been used in the solution of a wide variety of problems of varying complexity.

A compiler with an analog-oriented input language

A compiler has been developed which, for problems involving differential equations expressible in the form y, combines to a considerable extent the desirable attributes of both types of computation.

The new block diagram compiler for simulation of sampled-data systems

The block diagram compiler known as BLØDI was put into use at Bell Laboratories in 1959 and reported in the Bell System Technical Journal in 1961. The compiler has been completely rewritten to

Graphical information exchange using direct-view display consoles is a rapidly growing means of communicating between a human and a computer and allows a problem to be solved which would not even be attempted using other techniques.

Digital simulation languages: a critique and a guide

The field of digital simulation language, although barely ten years old, has shown a remarkable growth and vigor. The very number and diversity of languages suggests that the field suffers from a

Translation to and from Polish Notation

The question of efficient translation between an "orthodox" mathematical notation of the kind ordinarily used in writing algebraic formulae and "Polish" notation has come to prominence as a result of the use of what is in effect Polish notation as the basic instruction language of two recent computers.
