Abstract : The authors study neuron-like elements as logic elements which have n inputs and 1 output and realizing certain switching functions. Functional errors are discussed for a neuron-like element logic circuit. A system of inequalities is given for determining the function of neuron-like element known as a threshold element in computer terminology. A method is presented for determining the required order of the circuit according to the given switching function and the required stability for a simultaneous change in parameters. The parameters of the coupling element depend on the circuit realization of the switching function. A redundancy circuit can be set up on the basis of threshold parameters having arbitrarily high stability with respect to simultaneous parameter changes. The threshold elements have an arbitrarily low stability with respect to simultaneous parameter changes of the type discussed. This method is used for setting up redundancy circuits which execute both switching functions realized and not realized by a single threshold element. (Author)
