We consider the problem of algorithm-based fault tolerance, and make two
contributions. First, we show how very general sequences of polynomials
can be used to generate the checksums,
so as to reduce the chance of numerical overflows.
Second, we show how the Lanczos process
can be applied in the error location and correction steps,
so as to save on the amount of work
and to facilitate actual hardware implementation.
