Abstract : This method is described insofar as it applies to data-processing devices (DPD) whose general design principles are such that ideally they should operate as deterministic automata B but, owing to the unreliability of their design components, they actually operate as probabilistic automata A. Thus, the problem is to develop a control device C which determines whether the states of the homomorphic automata A and B are co-incident; if they are not, this indicates the presence of a malfunction.
