About the Definition of Coherency in Binary System Reliability Analysis
This paper was stimulated by discussions which arose at the last NATO-ASI in Urbino and by Caldarola’s new definition of coherency . Moreover, the development of a procedure, for the analysis of a fault-tree constituted by AND-OR-NOT gates , showed the necessity of identifying the possible logic structures of actual physical systems.
