This is the first speed-reading course ever accredited by the University of Paris. All general content developed in the Paris lectures and exercises are included herein. This system has been taught successfully to students and professionals in America, Europe, and has had great success in Japan. It represents a systematic attrition of bad reading habits through exercising good reading habits.

The Finite Element Machine is an experimental parallel computer developed at Langley Research Center to investigate the application of concurrent processing to structural engineering analysis. This report describes system-level software which has been developed to facilitate use of the machine by applications researchers. The overall software design is outlined, and several important parallel processing issues are discussed in detail, including processor management, communication, synchronization, and input/output. Based on experience using the system, the hardware architecture and software design are critiqued, and areas for further work are suggested.
