On Single-Fault Set Diagnosability in the PMC Model
August 1993 (vol. 42 no. 8)
pp. 981-983

A. Somani et al, (1987) introduced the single-fault set diagnosability measure and gave an O(n/sup 3.5/) algorithm for determining it in the PMC model. The authors present a new algorithm for the same problem with a time complexity of only O(n/sup 2.5/).
