A binary image algebra (BIA) that gives a mathematical description of parallel processing operations is described. Rigorous and concise BIA representations of parallel arithmetic and symbolic substitution operations are given. A sequence of programming steps for implementation of these operations on a parallel architecture is specified by the BIA representation. Examples of arithmetic operations implemented on a digital optical cellular image processor architecture are given.
