In recent years tnare has been increasing interexts incorrelation functions in such fields as automalic control and communication. One of the reason for this is that the autocorrelation function provides a statistical means for optimum setting when the input to a control system is an stationary random process. A simple digital device is described for computing the autocorrelation function and spectral density which is its Fourier tratnsform. The input function to be correlated are fed intothe
