Complex Replicated System

Figure: Cost of Complex Replicated Computations

Consider a complex replication of a system consisting of m components with n replications. The traditional architecture and the noemic architecture are in Figure gif on page  gif.

Let a be the cost of each of the m components in the calculation. Let c be the cost of communication. Let n be the number of replications.

The comparison results are shown in Table gif on page  gif. In a computation which has many components the Noema shows elaboration tolerance.
