The structure of cellular arrays and Tessellation Automata are
introduced as a "fabric" for use in the implementation of self-testing
and self-repairing computational configurations. Testing schemes are
suggested for use in the "self-testing" operation of this computer
system. Sequentially propagating tests are examined for both finite and
infinite geometries of cellular arrays. A static parallel testing procedure
is also suggested which offers these advantages: (1) the parallel
testing procedure is transparent to the computer configuration,
(2) very little computational down-time" results from testing, and
(3) the parallel testing procedure does not initiate reconfiguration of
the computational configuration.
