Subject:   RE: failure functions

   To continue:

      Let me give a numerical illustration. Let phi(x) = x^2 + x + 17.

     x       phi(x)       factors of         failure functions
                          phi(x)                 x=

     1        19           19                  1 + 19k

     2        23           23                  2  +  23k

     3       29            29                  3 +  29k

  
 Note:  i)  When x generated  by the f.functions  are substituted in
            phi(x) we  invariably get failures (composites).
        ii) When phi(x) is composite each factor contributes a
            failure function.
