On gravel-crunchèn wheels did ride,
Wi' ho'ses, iron-shod,
That, as their heads did nod, my whip
Did guide along wi' lightsome flip.

Error Detection and Correction Once Alice and Bob have agreed on sifted bits, they must perform error correction to find and then eliminate those bits that have been damaged in transmission, i.e., the flipped bits sent as a 1 but received as a 0 or vice versa.

Proof of theorems relating to testing of «widened long flip-flop»: A1.
Easily testable logical networks based on a 'widened long flip-flop'
Table II-1) would fail, no matter whether the «canonical long flip-flop» has stuck-at-faults.
Easily testable logical networks based on a 'widened long flip-flop'
Thus if the «canonical long flip-flop» has stood the test (Table II-1), then as a matter of fact the test (Table II-2) was successfully executed.
Easily testable logical networks based on a 'widened long flip-flop'
If the pattern alternates its values, then the «long flip-flop» executes useful fu nction and in the same time is being tested for stuck-at-faults; 2) it is possible to use «long flip-flop» (Figure II-4) for implementing N –argument AND, and «long flip-flop» (Figure II-5) — for implementing N –argument OR.
Easily testable logical networks based on a 'widened long flip-flop'
Furthermore, traditional analogues (unlike the «long flip-flop») re quire absence of errors in input vectors of test because any such error leads to erroneous testing results.
