Abstract : Parallel (Series) and Series (Parallel) systems are defined, and a physical basis is presented as motivation for analysis of the asymptotic properties of their reliabilities. Two theorems are presented to provide useful computational tools in evaluating reliability limit functions. The behavior of balanced and unbalanced systems is examined and conclusions drawn therefrom. A special imbalance which yields a unique limit function is presented. (Author)
