Recursively declared classes . . can be recognized only by automata of unbounded size. 4. In order for an automaton to solve a . . recursive problem, the possibility must be granted that it can be extended unboundedly in whatever way might be required. 5. Automata formulated in accordance with automata theory will, after a finite number of extensions, conflict with at least one of the postulates above. The fact that signal-propagation time increases with the size of a system, and therefore requires special considerations, was for instance already recognized in the design of one of the first “supercomputers”, the Cray-1 from the year 1976.

X; 0; z/ 7! x; 1; z/ 7! z; 1; x/. The values of x and z are exchanged if and only if y D 1. The value of y is not influenced by the gate. The Quine transfer distinguishes itself by a particularly aesthetic unfolding into a Petri net. 7 shows a representation, hand-drawn by Petri. Reversible Switching Circuits Closing of the signal lines to cycles, permits delay elements to be represented by information flow graphs. By inverting the signal flow, it is possible to construct switching circuits. In the article State-Transition Structures in Physics and in Computation [18], Petri briefly hints at the possibilities of such 48 5 The Maturing Years Fig.
