Abstract (english): The TIU is a hardware implementation of the transitivity table central to Allen's qualitative, interval-based tempral logic. In the TIU, temporal relations amongst two time intervals are represented as an n-bit binary word. Two such words, which describe part of the temporal relations amongst three connected time intervals, allow the computation of the third, missing relation. Thus, a TIU maps two binary words of length n onto one binary word of length n. [Typical size for n: n = 13]. Two possible instantiations of the TIU are shown in detail. Both instantiations demonstrate the general concept of a TIU.
