ABSTRACT
$((t,k))$-diagnosis, which is a generalization of sequential diagnosis, requires that at least $(k)$ faulty processors should be identified and repaired in each iteration provided there are at most $(t)$ faulty processors, where $(t\ge k)$. In this paper, we propose a unified approach for computing the $((t,k))$-diagnosability of numerous multiprocessor systems (graphs) under the Preparata, Metze, and Chien's model, including hypercubes, crossed cubes, twisted cubes, locally twisted cubes, multiply-twisted cubes, generalized twisted cubes, recursive circulants, Möbius cubes, Mcubes, star graphs, bubble-sort graphs, pancake graphs, and burnt pancake graphs. Our approach first sketches the common properties of the above classes of graphs, and defines a superclass of graphs, called $(m)$--dimensional component-composition graphs, to cover them. We then show that the $(m)$-dimensional component-composition graph $(G)$ for $(m \ge 4)$ is $((\Omega (h),\kappa (G)))$-diagnosable, where $(\displaystyle h={\left\{\matrix{{2^{m-2}\times \lg {(m-1)}\over m-1} &{\rm if} 2^{m-1} \le \vert V(G)\vert < m!\cr 2^{m-2}\hfill & {\rm if} \vert V(G)\vert \ge m!,\hfill}\right.})$ and $(\kappa (G))$ and $(\vert V(G)\vert)$ denote the node connectivity and the number of nodes in $(G)$, respectively. Based on this result, the $((t,k))$-diagnosability of the above multiprocessor systems can be computed efficiently.
