Learning objectives:
  To inform the students about different types of redundancy and its application for the design of computer systems being able to function correctly even under presence of faults and data errors.
Description:
  Principles of fault tolerance, structures and techniques. Codes for control and correction of information. Sparse parity codes. Cyclic codes, Fire codes, Galois field construction, BCH and RS codes. Convolutional codes. Fail-safe systems. Architecture of FT systems. Fault tolerance at VLSI level. Fault tolerance in computer units, computer systems and communication networks. Radiation fault tolerance. A380 control system. Distributed tolerant systems, fault tolerant software.
