On a wide class of bases with unreliability coefficient equal to one

On a wide class of bases with unreliability coefficient equal to one Abstract. We consider a realization of Boolean functions by circuits composed of unreliable functional elements in some complete finite basis B. We assume that all elements are subjected independently of each other to inverse failures on the output with probability ε (0, 1/2). We find a set of functions G and prove that the unreliability coefficient of the basis B which contains functions of G equals 1.
Ill. 3, bibliogr. 13.

Keywords: unreliable functional element, circuit asymptotically optimal with respect to reliability, inverse failure on outputs of elements, synthesis of circuits composed of unreliable elements.
