Abstract : With the advent of high speed computers, the digital processing of data became a common practice among many researchers. The recent trend among geophysical researchers has been to establish their own computer system by use of a mini computer rather than time sharing of a larger system. In developing such a system, a question arises as to how reliable is the newly acquired computer system. A method of evaluating a performance of such computer system is presented. The method consists of processing data of known characteristics and comparing the results. The quantities calculated include: probability densities, higher order moments, spectra, cross spectra, and a coherency spectrum. (Author)
