An error propagation model has been developed for multimodule computing systems in which the main parameters are the distribution functions of error propagation times. A digraph model is used to represent a multimodule computing system, and error propagation in the system is modeled by general distributions of error propagation times between all pairs of modules. Two algorithms are developed to
error propagation; multimodule computing system; error propagation model; digraph model; fault-tolerant microprocessor; directed graphs; errors; fault tolerant computing; multiprocessing systems.
