              DEFINITION  OF   FAILURE  FUNCTION (Polynomial)

    Let  phi(x) be a polynomial in x ( x belongs to Z).

    Let the definition of a failure be  a composite number.

    Then  x =  psi(x_o) =  x_o  +  k.phi(x_o), where x_o  is a

    specific value of  x  and k belongs to N,  is  a  failure  

    function since  x = psi(x_o)  yields values of x

    such that phi(x)  generates  only  failures (composites).
