Abstract

We describe the architecture of a special purpose computer designed to calculate with high precision the critical exponents characterizing the threshold behavior of electrical conductivity in random mixtures of conductors-insulators, or superconductors-conductors. The algorithm that is used, which determines the architecture, is that of the strip method. Computations are being done in 64-bit floating point arithmetic, at a rate of 8 MFLOPS.
