Abstract : The report considers the potentials of residue coding (or congruence checking) to check for errors in arithmetic type operations in a computer. The primary motivation of the study was analysis of cost and complexity of circuitry required to realize error checking by means of residue coding as an alternative to duplication of a computer's arithmetic unit.
