The problem of retrieving an ordered list of k words that satisfy a given search condition from an associative memory of m words of n bits each is addressed. A fast ordered retrieval algorithm is proposed, along with a logic design for a cellular associative memory which mechanizes the algorithm. The algorithm is of time complexity O(n+k). By contrast, the fastest previously known algorithms, b
