Abstract : The reliability analysis of a broad class of logical systems is presented. The analysis of a deterministic logical net is considered first, and the results are later extended to stochas ic nets. A measure of the reliability of a logical device is derived from the stochastic description of the output of the logical system. Even though analysis, not synthesis, is the main purpose of this study, its results bear some design implication. I T WILL BE SEEN THAT IF INDEPENDENT VARIABLES ARE ALLOWED TO FEED THE FINAL OUTPUT UNIT, A PROPER SELECTION OF ITS FUNCTION MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO INCREASE THE OVERALL RELIABILITY OF THE LOGICAL NET WITHOUT MULTIPLEXING OR DUPLICATING EQUIPMENT.
