## Abstract

We consider Parallel Random Access Machine (PRAM) which has some processors and memory cells faulty. The faults considered are static, i.e., once the machine starts to operate, the operational/faulty status of PRAM components does not change. We develop a deterministic simulation of a fully operational PRAM on a similar faulty machine which has constant fractions of faults among processors and memory cells. The simulating PRAM has n processors and m memory cells, and simulates a PRAM with n processors and a constant fraction of m memory cells. The simulation is in two phases: it starts with preprocessing, which is followed by the simulation proper performed in a step-by-step fashion. Preprocessing is performed in time script O sign ( ( m/n + log n) log n). The slowdown of a step-by-step part of the simulation is script O sign (log m).
