The multislice algorithm is the dominant method in the computation of high resolution images from crystals. As the algorithm can be structured in terms of Fourier transforms and multiplications on large arrays, it is ideally suited to array processors. Computation times for various systems are compared, and it is shown that a minicomputer with an attached array processor is competitive with mainframe computers. This opens up the possibility of building interactive work stations for high resolution structure analysis.
