Stochastic Automata and the Problems of Reliability in Sequential Machines
April 1972 (vol. 21 no. 4)
pp. 388-391
Behrooz Parhami, Student in the Department of Computer Science, University of California, Los Angeles, Calif. 90024.
A stochastic sequential machine model is employed to investigate some of the problems concerning the reliability of sequential machines. Two methods, using the notions of entropy for stochastic automata and principal entries in their transition matrices, are used and compared for reliability estimates. The problem of synthesizing automata of given known reliability through replication and voting is also examined.
